By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last upload.

Now for something different. I went out with the Macro lens to see if I could find any butterflies. I saw a peacock but I had forgotton how fast they are. Then I found this little one. Definitely will have to put in more practice but I was quite pleased with it. Any help with the ID would be appreciated. I have to go out now so will have another look through later and will catch up with voting and commenting later tonight.

Have a good evening.

Cathy and Stan

Really superb macro image, sharp throughout, suprisingly difficult to actually achieve. I believe it to be the female of a Common Blue Damselfly, but am no expert on insects.
An outstanding macro image, Cathy. Perfectly presented and not a bird in sight. One to be proud about GrinGrin. The clarity is amazing.
Deserves my UA.
