Beautifully detailed as ever and the colours are glorious. Missing these little fellows around here as they were generous in allowing me to capture their images on many an occasion during summer!

Amazing close-ups, as we've come to expect from you, Carol. Top quality images with stunning detail.
Many thanks for your vote 8 comments on my 'Chiesa degli Scalzi' upload - a Gorillapod, by the way, is a small tripod about 10" high with flexible legs, which can be twisted or bent so it can easily attached to many different objects, such as a narrow post or railings, for example. Or it can be used as a normal mini tripod, as in my upload. It's extremely light & compact, which makes it ideal for taking away on holiday. (See .

Carol I did put a comment this morning, but maybe didn't go through as I clicked on the user award at the same time. Anyway don't see it on here. I said that I thought these were a wonderful set of shots. Beautiful colour and so sharp. Sorry didn't check to see that the comment went through. Just came back to have another look at these beautiful shots. Moira

The sun shining on the body and wings of the hoverfly and the floral perch it's own suggest a summer shot somehow.......the detail in both is so good here, Carol. Beautifully taken, all three images, so they'll have to accept 1/3 vote each this time round.
