'Sexy Skippers'

By suzieosman
I've recently finished sorting through and cataloguing all my shots....hundreds and hundreds of 'em! I've binned the rubbish, and spent the last half hour trying to decide, what to upload...LOL
The trouble with this time of year, is whenever possible, I'm out taking pictures, then don't have the time to sort them out. What with babysitting loads this week, I've not been able to get on the site, so my apologies to everyone, for being so quiet lately.

Anyway, here's one I took earlier......
Sunday 26th June, out with the dogs, at one of our local haunts and nearly stepped on these amorous Skippers. After managing to shoo the dogs away, I got down in the grass (as you do) and took some shots......Hope you like it....Warmest Regrads to all....I promise to catch up with you all soon....Sue x

That's the stuff Sue! Get 'em while there at it...! Nothing better!

Beautifully captured too! Skippers always do it on these awkward angles, so it can be very difficult to get them both in the picture... which you have achieved admirably here!

Well done!

Oh, me going to be doing more of these I think, easy peasy Wink)

Seriously I've found a nice little location, quiet, not too many people, but also safe (If you know what I mean). Has a nice little cafe as well.

Now all I have to do is work out where to start looking in the idenitifcation book. I have a real 'blind spot' about these sorts of things. I mean I know the difference I can just never remember.

Anyway the competition will continue, sorry.

Off for a week or so now so should have thousands of images to choose from the week after Wink)

Take care.
