  1. The first three of these were taken at dawn before I went to work on Thursday. The early start nearly killed me but I think it was worth it :wink:.

  7. Very nice captures Alex. I always like photos with dew on the subject. The butterflies are beautiful.

    Wow, definitely worth the lost sleep! Is that a wolf spider? We have one who builds a web on one side of our front door that I keep meaning to try to catch...

    Excellent captures. Wow you've been up early.
     
  10. Thanks all.

    The early starts are a must at the moment cos it rains most of the daylight hours! ;0) Plus I can then get some photography in before I go to work.

    Cheers

    Great shots Alex. I think it was worth is to get up early, judging by these shots.
