Good Day to you all at ePz

Thank you for taking the time out to view, comment and vote on my upload yesterday.

Todays image was captured the other day whilst roaming the grounds of the Hospital Home. It shows a Small Skipper on a unripe Bramble.

I hope that you have a great day for me Julie will be popping down from Rochester, She has only five days left be for she jumps 13,500 feet in order to help raise funds for the the Hospital Home where I am staying.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Excellent captures. My personal favourite is the portrait format in V2.

Juile will love the jump I am sure. (Been there, done that!)

Having learned how to jump with a parachute, I don't feel any yearning to repeat the experiences of those days!
However, Happy Landings to Julie - a good effort.

That bug will have to wait a week or two before the fruit is ready!
Good picture.
