Running out of superlatives for these Tim.
It must be wonderful to live in a place with such an incredible prufusion of plant and insect life.

Wow, what a great response already! Thank you all for your incredibly encouraging comments!

I just got back from a two hour shoot in a field of wild mustard, poppies and large blue alkanets, teeming with butterflies of all sorts...

... it's all too much too take in, my head is spinning from the diversity!

Your kind words keep me going!

Wish my head was spinning from being surrounded by butterflies and copious amounts of diversity! Smile

Great shot btw Smile Can you believe I have only seen about 2 dragonflies around where I live so far this year!

Thanks again for all your kind comments!

Matt, actually this is only the second dragonfly also for me this year, although I have to say I was very pleased with the first one being an Emperor!

It is odd actually there were many more last year...

Joe, Nicholas, and Ade thanks for your comments!

Ade, you always know how to make me feel really good about a shot... ;O)

... yeah it's deliberate mate... love to watch those eyes turn green...! LOL

There's plenty to criticise here though, you're just too much of a gentleman to really let fly with the passionate dismantling of it!
