thanks a lot for your compliment. But it really was luck, not superior knowledge: I had only this one shot out in the yard, then the animal was gone. I am only pleased with the fact that my first reaction was to go right away for a head-on portrait.
We will stay in contact, although I confess to devote much less time to photography and TN- watching these days. My best regards,
Tipula oleracea (20)
