These are very common and can look incredibly boring so I was lucky to find one on a knapweed !

Thank up all for the kind comments. I do enjoy sitting in the ditch and waiting for them to land !

Not boring at all, lovely sharp picture and diffused background. Another good advert for the 55-300mm lens, what a fantastic piece of kit!

Thank you David and Nuri - yes, I'm very pleased with the 55-300, which I bought following advice from this forum !
This lens and the 18-55 kit lens are fantastic lenses - just a question of getting the most out of them, particularly when I see what others are able to achieve with them !
