But his mother loves him Wink An uncropped image of a hornet, one of my less friendly subjects to photograph. I caught him unawares in V.1, but by V.3 he is definitely on the defensive and it was time for me to depart Grin

V1 is impressive but it is v3 that is my winner, very interesting and something important to learn from it, while with my long lens I never get to close from my POV it is good to learn the body language for the day you collect your plums or mirabelles!
