This morning's uploads are dedicated to one of ePZ's most well known nature photographers, Ade Osmant (Ade_Osman), who never fails to amaze us with his wonderful close-ups, particularly moths. Today Ade hits the big '50', so I reckon by the end of the day, having downed goodness knows how many gallons of Zomerset Zider, his eyes will be looking rather like the little damsel above Wink

All great images Carol, its a toss up between V1 and V3 of which
the later might win out for its furriness.
Cheers the Ade and many happy returns of the day to you…..GrinGrinGrinGrin

awwww......Thank you Carol.....I've been drunk since Friday and intend staying pretty much that way until Monday. Hic!.....Well it is my 50th......hence the reason I've been a little on the quiet side, though I did have the moth traps out last night and I'm about to go and try taking a few snaps TongueTongueTongueTongueTongue

A terrific trio of macros dedicated to epz legend Ade "Ciderhead" Osmant on the day he celebrates his 50th birthday, no doubt he's downed at least a pint of the amber nectar for every year he's passed!WinkGrinTongue As for 50 you are having a laugh, he's 60 more like and is just being economical with the truth!Wink
