    lovely capture Neil, is it newly emerged?

  • Thank you Jon, this may have been newly emerged, but it did some flying before landing for 10 minutes or so when it arched its abdomen.

    Another amazing macro. I just love that fold-away tail. Almost like he wanted to make sure you could get it fully in shot:-) Congrats!

  • Thank you Kasia, much appreciated :-). He was a very willing subject
