  1. Great shots, Pete. I can’t begin to imagine how you must have made that first image. Laying on the ground I presume?

    1. Sometimes I do have to get belly flat on the ground for some images, but I got lucky with this one for it had landed on an elevated garden wall, and thankfully so πŸ™‚ Thank you πŸ™‚

  2. Your garden is indeed a treasure trove of discovery. But without your talent these critters would be largely unseen. Lucky for us!

    1. Thank you very much for saying that, Diana πŸ™‚ I have found over the years of taking wildlife pictures that you kind of become attuned to spotting and seeing things that you would have otherwise just strolled on by.
