I haven't spotted my favourite characters for many weeks now, so you can imagine my delight when this little fella appeared late one evening, enjoying the last of the sun.

You haven't dropped a clanger in capturing these ones, Carol: wonderfully sharp images and once again I am amazed at the 'skin tones', so powdery but allowing great textures to be recorded.
