    Trish strikes again! Much more humane than pinning them to a collector’s box, which I never did fancy. That little bloke was lucky to find your garden, and a welcoming committee. Great shot, Trish.

  • Gary, thank you ! They are rare visitors, big and beautiful both in flight and making their way around the flowers. I spent 15 minutes of pure joy watching and photographing :)
