January seemed to pass very quickly, and it's time again for the month end montages. Not too many wild flowers around at present, but I did locate and photograph quite a number of bugs and beasties, though not many new finds.

It is always a bit of a shock to find another month has passed by but its always a pick-me-up to see your fabulous montages. Another super series Carol, you have inspired me to get a decent macro lens this year,thanks.

I never seem to know the exact date but I always know when we reach the end of a month from these montages of your's, Carol: what a feast of critters and flowers today, a wonderful way of displaying so much of your more recent work.

What an incredible array of insects you've photographed. When I got to v2, upper rh corner, and lr corner - I went: eeek, eww - my absolute two most detested bugs, all stemming from traumatic childhood memories............

Such a relief to open the images of the flowers Smile

Fabulous and I think very time consuming work on these montages.
