Wow! Panny goes into overdrive, Carol Wink Love this set, excellent macro work. WINTER hover flies?? I live in the wrong country....I have a confused Hebe out right now which should come out in April. It normally attracts hover flies, but won't for another 3 months at least.
Super set here. The colours are excellent too.
