Drink it all at one sitting - midway through the second glass you'll have fewer regrets.

Ha! I like your thinking!! :-P

I'm told it won't be ready for about ten years yet. On the other hand, I've no intention of leaving it to my heirs! :-P

Jack, if you wanna send it across the pond, I can store it here at my house for ya. You know it would be safe here. ;-)a

Sorry, Mike. I've just asked it about this, but it insists it is full of alcohol and needs to lie down in a darkened room for a year or two. ;-)a

I have just the place for it Jack. I can put it in my sock drawer. That way it will stay dark, and I can check on it once a week, when I change my socks. :mrgreen:

These are both very nice shots, Jack. In the first picture, the Scaeva pyrastri looks like he has fans whirling on each side of his body. :-)

Thanks, Mike. They were certainly moving too fast for the eye to see. I wonder what shutter speed would be necessary to freeze the action? I'll have to try that sometime, but there was no chance in today's light.

Jack, I have no idea. I stopped the wings of a dragonfly in flight at 1/2000, but I don't know if that would work on a bee. I really like the shot of the bee's wings whirling in a blur motion. I think it looks cool.
