Ready for his final approach here Ronnie.
Looks like he will land on the top runway.
The bottom one is out of order as it is too droopy !!
Super close up.

Gorgeous colours and such large raindrops!! Makes the little hoverfly look so small. Great detail. Carole
Brilliant Ronnie, this would have been a special image without th ehoverfly, who arrived at just the right moment. A dream of an image, well done.
