The scorpionflies are about again, but very much on the move, I spent ages getting these images, the wretched fly just didn't wan't to keep still, plus I was battling with the windy conditions.

It's hard to imagine you battling to capture your critters as they are always of such a high standard. An excellent set yet again Carol. I have never seen one of these the detail is superb

Hi Carol! I have wanted to see one of those close up for a long time...
No such luck... Hence your three images are very good because you show three rather different posed that show off the insect beautifully! Love her long "Sea Horse" face...Grin

You've really thrown down the gauntlet for the Big O when he makes his return to epz this weekend, if he sees these he may as well not bother as he'll be hard pressed to better these even with his expensive equipment and field craft skills honed from years spent down on the Somerset Levels and on the Mendips!Grin
