5 fascinating images of this encounter, with V 1 and 2 them sizing each other up (or down as the case may be): V 2 seems a favourite and it is with me too, Carol.
Each shot captured in immaculate detail and the clarity is further enhanced by them being set against the blue of the sky.
Wonderful insect photography........a genre which you have truly mastered.
