This one is well named as it's no way as sleek and streamlined as the many others we see on site.
Another well captured specimen.

A pin sharp and wonderfully posed capture, the diagonal line making for an interesting view point.

Being mindful of the small size of the subject captured here - this has been superbly done. Love the lighting, the fine detail captured in the wings and body with an excellent out of focus non-distracting background that produces a near 3D effect.

Smashing piece of work.
