Just for once today I've kicked the old man's butt (Ade Osman) and taken (by his own admission) a better shot than he has, he ain't happy! Grin And I don't even have a dedicated Macro lens and I found them on my own while he had wandered off elsewhere.
Thought it was about time I put a shot up, it's been a while!

Thanks everyone, you're all very kind. Yes Mike, I think I may have one or two lurking somewhere on the hard drive....but I'm just too lazy to process 'em and too modest to show 'em Wink. You never know, after all this praise I may let you see a few more....but don't tell Ade!
Love to all, Sue

Only just found your PF Suzie by reading hubby's comments. This is a superb shot in all respects and he certainly is right when he says you've kicked his butt Wink
