Giv' us a Hug

By SteveMoulding    
The quality's not brilliant and I wouldn't normally consider uploading it. But the pose of this Red was just magic, so here it is, warts and all. I had a very busy weekend and today was even worse but at least the weekend was for pleasure unlike today. I have had to just click and run on quite a few over the past couple of days, so apologies for that.
Many thanks for all the kind comments and clicks on my last Red, and I hope you like this one too.

So you should be, give the man 10,000 lines, "I must reciprocally click on other members work". That'll upset them in the forums.....LOL

Well captured Steve, especially as I couldn't even manage to capture a decent image of even a single one let alone a pair the other w/e....

I have never been lucky enough to see a red let alone get a shot of one and you get a shot of two, I would be chuffed to get a shot like this. - gary

It's a lovely capture, warts or not Wink. Like Gary, I've never even seen one, so I'm envious of this.
