the closing sequence

By CarolG  
I love skippers, and get great pleasure photographing them, so you may be seeing a lot more in the future
I managed to capture this little chappie in the early evening sun, in a sequence of shots, showing him slowly closing his wings ready to roost up for the night.

Fingers, toes and everything crossed that things are going to work out here, and many, many thanks again to all those who have assisted. I still have a long way to go to meet the target, so must remain positive, though it is difficult to do so.

V2 works best for me...
A great set of images...
I feel V2 looks a little sharper.
The body has better comp.
There more tones and shadows in the body.
Great work...

I love these head-on shots. And it's got such a sweet face. I'm rather taken with V5 - all closed up and trying to look skinny for your camera. Smile
