Beautiful things
Tom Wilson: They are indeed - and by no means as common as they used to be.

Occasionally you see these coming out of hibernation in winter, but I haven't seen one this year, so your picture is more than welcome, Tom
Tom Wilson: It's been a long while since I saw one in our garden!
A rare sight in the garden these days sadly
Tom Wilson: Years since I've seen one.

Not a picture that I would expect from you Tom, but a very pleasant one.
Tom Wilson: All a matter of opportunity, Chad - I'd like to do more nature photography, but the opportunities rarely arise these days.
So pretty and perfectly opened for a photo.
Tom Wilson: Thanks Mary.
Lovely creatures aren't they.
Tom Wilson: They are indeed, Brian.

This is beautiful, Tom. Great colours and wonderful DOF.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astrid - my previous camera, the Canon 7D
It does indeed seem poised...
