Yes, it's that time again, and July proved to be more successful than I had hoped, what with the really hot and dry weather keeping a lot of bugs in hiding.

Being retired many years I can lose track of the date very easily but the minute I see these montages of your's, Carol, I know a new month is about to start.
A lot of work as usual had gone into these compilations........very hard to choose a favourite, so they'll need to share my sole vote.

Some great bug images here Carol, but what looks like a Wood Tiger Moth in V3 is very impressive, but you'd expect me to say that......

Have an award, not so much because of your image quality, but more for your dedication and the fact you do it all with what could be seen as a basic compact camera, no offence.....Well done you and keep up the good work.

Carol I'm gobsmacked.
These five montages are all individually excellent.
You should print a book of these as one look isn't enough.
It would be great to get children interested in wildlife and flowers.
You could maybe do an EBook which people could print off
and it wouldn't involve cost of printing for you.
Superb and inspirational.
