Gorgeous little creature beautifully captured. I trust that she stocked up with nectar from the plant before release.

I have to admit that this little fellow is quite endearing, sitting on your lovely blue flower, Carol.
And you got the detail and colours 'just right'...
...but I still don't think he's as pretty as my Monkey - only kidding Wink
They are all really good images and I can see you have put a lot of time and effort into the processing.
