HALLELUJAH! At last, my connection is back! No chance of catching up on all your uploads over the past 6 weeks, but hopefully tomorrow I can get back into the swing of ePZ. Thank you all so much for being so patient with me over this very trying period.
My upload today is of a very welcome, and rare, visitor to my garden.

Terrific to see you back and functioning normally (so to speak). This chap is quite a giant compared with your usual subjects, but photographed with the same gentle, sympathetic patience. V1 works best for me but I do like the close-up portrait in V4.

Hi Carol

You and this little friend are welcome back to EPZ and to my screen, these are so very clear and sharp in your wonderful frames I have missed your images of late, so glad you got your connection sorted out at last. You must be so so relieved.

The little wet nose shines out as do the eyes of this charming little hedgehog, I adore them but they are seldom seen here now... Sad
