Thanks you so much for your kind comments, as always well appreciated.

I was slightly miffed by the strong sun on this occasion, I have some shots in nice dull light in the processing queue I hope to be able to show you soon.

Beautiful captures, Lester. I particularly like the second shot although I recognize that those of the female (especially the last shot) are also beauties. Do you find the females much more elusive than the males, the Demoiselles that is :)
