Small Heath

By gary_d
This one was tucked away amongst the leaves and I was lucky to have a little window to point the lens.

Thanks for the great response to yesterdays image and a special thanks to Bob and Pamela for your very valued user awards.

Regards. - Gary

A cracking close up of this small heath Gary, the detail and colours are first class. This one looks very fresh and you did really well to get it above ground level as they are notorious for resting down on the ground or in the long grass!
