There were so many little skippers looking for a roosting place in the meadow one night, I just had to have a bit of fun with them, and managed to coax four of them to line up for a photo shoot Smile

The queue is great in V1, V2 with an odd number will keep the purists happy but for me the outstanding image is that head on shot, V3.

Hi Carol, congratulation for the user award'S you deserve them...

excellent set of images, it seems that these bugs, moths, butterflies and many more that you shoot are like your tamed one's because they pose for you simply, whatever pose you want they give you the same..

Really stunning...
