A stunning macro Brian, the details and colours are fabulous and I like the way they are both facing each other as though they are dining at a table or drinking in a bar

Beautiful macro Brian.

Ken.

ps, as we were in Stratford upon Avon over the weekend I made a point of visiting the butterfly house.

Sadly, I failed yet again to get some decent butterfly shots! Sad

As we walked in my glasses instantly fogged over and I couldn't see a thing because of the condensation.Sad

We didn't have a great deal of time to wait for the condensation to clear on my lenses and despite constantly wiping them they quickly fogged up again!

I'll keep trying though! Smile

Know what you mean Ken. Frustrating - I don't do butterfly houses anymore - too much hassle.!!
