I'll join the queue Mark - I like No 1 better also.

Love them both. So crystal clear and wonderful colour.

I gladly welcome C & C's. Being foggy minded they really help me learn.

Great stuff - especially to catch the bee in flight so sharply. I like them both although number 1 just takes the prize I think (although I prefer the fatter bee in number 2...)

Great stuff (again)
