For CarolG

By ChiliMan
Lillian , thank you so much for your User Award on yesterday’s shot. Well chuffed Grin


Alrighty, people…today’s image is from a shot I took yesterday morning at HortPark. The night prior, CarolG said in a PM that she would order some good weather for me. I don’t know what courier she used but the weather not only arrived on time, it was glorious Smile

I had started to take pics of this water lily when a bee/wasp type thing dropped by. Took loads of shots and most were chucked. This one seemed worthy of upload. I was quite pleased about having caught him in flight Smile Hope you like, Carol Grin

Lovely image, nice and sharp with good background defocus. The insect also adds interest - well done.

On a separate note, if CarolG is taking orders.......

I'd like to order a Million pounds in used notes, delivered to my home address by a Blonde Swedish Nymphomaniac (Preferably topless!) oh, and she should be towing a trailer of Ice cold Stella.

PS - I'll pay extra for a Saturday morning delivery, cause that's the kind of guy I am Smile
