Many thanks to SimonFletch for his most unexpected User Award on yesterday’s ants Smile

-----

Now then…today’s shots were from one of those fortuitous moments. I was trying to get a decent ID shot of this Panama Rose (strange name, huh?) just for reference purposes…when this skipper dropped in! Luckily I managed to pick my jaw off the floor in time to take these pics before the fella skipped off Smile
