Another month finished, and time for another collage, or should I say, three. June was a bumper month for bugs and beasties here, so I was spoilt for choice.

Many apologies for the lack of clicks/comments yesterday, no sooner had I uploaded a pic then the electricity went off, and I was without for the whole of the day. No prior warning that the guys would be installing new cables, but then that's the norm in Crete! I don't know if they have finished yet, so whether I have power today or not remains to be seen. At least it gave me a chance to get some work done in the garden!

A fabulous collection of images Carol. What a lot of work has gone into producing these three montages. I know how long it takes to balance the colour, , light, size, direction etc. in each collection, let alone come up with each square- congratulations on 3 amazing compilations. V1 is my favourite as the bugs are so colourful

Each image is top quality and you have put an amazing amount of work in to produce three stunning montages. Really think you should approach your local Tourist Board to see if they would be interested in using/selling some of your images, although having said that I would think you have enough flora and fauna images of Crete to produce a book by now!
