Good day to you all at ePz

Thank you all so very much for taking the time out to view, comment and vote on my image of a Shield Bug yesterday.

Todays image had been dragged out of my archives for an airing. It was captured whilst spending some respite at a place called Chipstead Lakes in Kent.

I hope that you have a lovely day whatever you may get up to.

The forecast is not good with the hurricane force gales promising to work their way along the coast so a good book is on the cards.

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrin
