Good caption Ed.
Another good nature image with the burnet moth and soldier beetle.
Before I took up photography, I wouldn't have been able to name these creatures.

Well done for getting them both so well Ed, now that's a challenge for Ade to get three, but they have to be in the wild not in his studioSmileSmile - gary
As above great capture. Nice colours and depth of sharpness.

I can raise the bar even higher tomorrow if you want Gary, but knowing Ade he'll probably end up getting eight elephant hawkmoths on some buddleia in his back garden!Wink
