Good morning, today's image is what I call a " oh my god get your camera out quick and take a shot moment" and I'm chuffed to bit's I did.SmileSmileSmile The noise of it's wing's was quite loud and I never realised how big their wing span is. I've never seen this happen before so was very excited by the time I got to work and saw the result.GrinGrinGrin
I'm now on holiday and off to Guernsey from Monday so I'll wish you all a good weekend and I'll be back on the 23rd April. Take care of yourselves and thanks for looking.SmileSmileSmile
A big thank you to Christine for her UA for yesterday's Crocus, much appreciated.
