I though this Thistle was amazing in the light.
Thank you for all your fantastic reaction to my spiders it was amazing and a some later stage I will put up some of the more gory images, i was not sure of the reaction so I kept the blood covered one's back.
A special thank you to all of you for the Birthday wishes and to Colleen for letting the cat out of the bag.
Hilary and Dave for the valued and most Treasured UAs and the feeling it gives to receive some else's award for good work. Thank you.

Wild flower - not a weed! The thistle is such a photogenic plant and is to many insects.
This insect is a beauty ( CarolG has competition today).
I love your framing here John.

Superb colour and detail. Wonderfully taken.I was trying to take snow drops in the past two mornings None of them came out as I expected, I blame to the lens. I thought that I need a macro lens, when looked at your photo, I can't blame lens anymore.. so I blame to the wind..Grin
BTW, Thank you very much for your comment on "Death"..on...,Grin, John.
