A rather beautiful photograph depicting this extremely gorgeous pair of alternative species, beautiful colours, combined with lovely crisp detail throughout.

Good caption Ed.
Another good nature image with the burnet moth and soldier beetle.
Before I took up photography, I wouldn't have been able to name these creatures.

I can raise the bar even higher tomorrow if you want Gary, but knowing Ade he'll probably end up getting eight elephant hawkmoths on some buddleia in his back garden!Wink
