These are abundant this year, shame the insects gotr to them first, which is normally the way.
Be interested in the exposure details on this as they appear quite dark. I was on a 30 second exposure the other day for some

Great image, never mind the chewed bits, this happens in nature.
You might be able to recover exposure in PS.

Good effort.
