A set of images captured in my garden. The Skippers were munching away at the last remaining sweet smelling Lavender, a photographic opportunity not to be missed. Hope you enjoy.

Thank you for all your kind comments regarding my Eagle Owl upload.

Hope you all have a great day ahead.

Regards Nathan

P.S. A big THANK YOU for CarolG for presenting me with her UA yesterday.SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

A gorgeous Silver 'Y' moth - brilliantly caught. These day time moths are so difficult to capture because their wings are always fluttering! Smile
