Yet another Abba song that went offin my mind.
I've stopped editing my shots, coz I'm either over doing it, or something, till I get used to the new computer!

Hi Goldy,
did you put a wig on this insect?? A very nice setting though with some great light and colour - good composition too - well done mate!

Goldy, this is a very exotic species of a winged insect. I wish I could ID it for you. It has a a hairy thorax with olive green down on it.
Even the coloured bands at the bottom of the abdomen are something quite different.
It is a very good image in which the colour of the purple flowers goes well with the main subject.
TFs and regards.

I still have an album or two back when we called them albums...now we hardly use photo albums any longer more or less record albums...Honestly I have not seen anything like this insect before...a simple bee it isn't...it looks as though it is ready for trick or treat a few months early. I shall make an attempt to look it up but I am not very good at it.

Hello Goldy,

Nice macro shot from this butterfly.
Good details.

Hi Goldy,

That's an unusual looking insect! You have wonderful colors and details - wouldn't have needed much editing anyway. A very pretty scene with the violet flower and the nice green leaves.

Hello Goldy,
Where did you catch this? This is something different and have not seen it before. Lovely frame of this insect in the large picture. superb compo. Well done Ganesh

Hello Goldy,

Excellent sharp picture of this Hummingbird Moth. Beautiful composition. This one has a different and beautiful colour than the one I am use to see in summer. I hope to see this kind of moth this year and have the opportunity to take a picture.
