Good series, Carol.
Probably V2 is the most dramatic but they are all up to your high standard.

Not my favourite place either, Carol...

Don't think I've heard a mantis described as feisty before!! v3 for the shape in the frame.

Mornin' Carol,
Has to be V3Wink

Same crappy weather here - rained most of yesterday and night
Fine this morning but blowing a hooley, so no togging againSad

Actually thinking of taking a week or two off the site, until I have some new stuff to upload
Fed up of trawling through past folders looking for something, that in all honesty would have been uploaded at the time, if I thought it was good enough

A tremendous trio of images Carol, the weather is not good here either, I was going to go to the Festival of Birds at Slimbridge but did not bother when I saw the forecast!Sad Tomcat may be taking a break from the site I hear, as they say every cloud has a silver lining, at least you will be spared his tedious daily weather updates for a while!Wink

They always look so amiable you can hardly believe how aggressive they are.
At present here in Cornwall we have occasional blue sky, but very cold strong winds that are bringing really heavy wintry showersSmile

My sympathy is with you re. your experience at the dentist' hands: and three fine shots of your reluctant mantis, Carol.
Hope you are feeling on top of things again soon.
