I went out late one evening, and into a dappled woody area, where I spotted this beautiful lady settling down for the night. V.3 is rather silly, taken at the same time as the blues, but something about it appealed to me, so I thought I would share it with you.

Beautiful again, Carol.
That V3 shot is fabulous.
The stems are in the shape of a sitting butterfly and the fly looks very predatory.

Not silly, beautiful. It definitely has something about it. The butterfly shots are lovely as well, the light is perfect.

Whilst images one and three are perfect, I rather like image number three, the silhouetted Bee makes for a very charming and so very appealing composition Carol.

What we see as photographers Carol often gets a different rapport as this set and comments prove, most are going for V3 you may or not be surprised but I think while its different and not unattractive I will be a bore and stick with V1/2 Wink
