Hi Carol

Thanks for your comments on my last upload and I take your point - the Toucan is a magnificent bird and I know the filter isn't to everyones taste. It needs big bold colours and patterns to work well and I am just playing at the moment. Todays upload will be a more subtle affair. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Leapfrog? Really? I think they have other things on their minds it be Spring and all, LOL. The insects are nice and close with good bold colour and all three have good composition and variety. however I dont think the finger is the best platform for presenting them especially in V3 if you see what I mean.

perhaps one of them is actually a camera with built in tripod and a better view is simply being obtained - gosh i am so innocent lol
