Don't see many of these.

They don't stay still so I just had to fire away and hope for the best.

Thank you. Shame we don't see more of them. It would be nice if they stayed still for a few minutes.

Oooh lovely Brian - lovely shots of it too. I have only seen one on our house last year I think it was and like you said, they move very quickly, so you are lucky to get these. Beautiful colours too.
