Ooh I hate these little blighters. Every time I open my back door one gets in and makes straight for the cat food which I then have to throw away.
Superb shot though.

Thats a damn good shot Bri !

Real like how the curly bits of the seed-head find their shapes in the fly.

Quality.

that is the dilemma, once you have looked so close at them and see how pretty they can be you don't want to whack them any more Smile
