Well our snow has all gone - driving rain washed it all away on Saturday night
I'm hoping that there are not too many floods now.
Thanks for your clicks and comments on recent uploads.
I hope you all have a good week

Funny how we all see things differently I thought it had been placed there to create the eye of the storm!

The wave effect of the wheat is enhanced by the web droplets, and so much dynamism centred around the lighter middle. An excellent choice of images and so artistically melded.

Melded - now that's a word I was looking for one day and the spell checker wouldn't allow it but today is.
A wonderful creation Helen - can't express it better than Dave!

I really like the fronds of wheat blowing about here - the butterflies suit the image so well, and I'm glad that bit of spider web with droplets is in there too. Beautiful creation.

Super image Helen. Ironic that I was reading earlier that butterfly numbers will be down this year due to the second batch of eggs laid had been washed out of fields and scrub land by the floods last year.Sad
