    Good shot Mike these are normally very nervous and fly off when you approach. Great glossiness to the eye and wing.

    Bang on Phil, it settled on 4 flowers,the net on the pond, and finally the cane, very jittery. I was trying to use a tripod but in the end its hand held. Thanks for comment...Mike
