Gobsmacking photography, each image is sharp as a tack with great colour and superb detail. Furthermore your images are processed and presented to a very good standard Carol.

A very unusual and handsome insect Carol, I can't help with the ID but I'm sure someone will especially as they have such brilliant images to go off. Superb shots.

They really don't get better than this set! Take my UA for the day.

During the bee season here I carry a small, hotel size pot of honey and a stirring stick to rescue bees made torpid by a cold snap. Left alone they die from lack of sufficient energy to get back to the nest but a drop of honey in front of them gives them enough energy to go home. I get some weird looks and comments when I do this!

Its been a while Carol,
I was just thinking about the amount of insects that I have seen on your page that I never came across before untill you showed them here.
This one in particular is new and beautifully marked.
Thanks Carol.
