Lovely series Brian. The garden is a great place to get some fab macro shots, plus you can stop and have a cuppa when it goes quiet! :)

Great shot's Brian. Someday a hover will land on my finger for a photo. Here's hoping i don't instinctively swat it. The first 2 hovers are very pretty, love the colours.


Got stuff ;)
