Well were all allowed at least one in a year, I think it's of the large variety, but I'm sure someone will put me right if I'm wrong although it looked like a large one when I shot it Smile

Thanks again to everyone who kindly bestowed their awards on yesterdays moth images and to Caziwinkle for the GEA Blush Muchly appreciated guys along with all the kind comments.

Conventional is good, Ade, and we know you can do it, but your stacked pictures are a real treat.
