Thank you ever so much Brian... and Christine... so pleased you like this one... Vicki helped me work on some of the detail work... I just marvel at these tiny little creatures every year... so surprised to find I caught one in focus and enough sun to show the wonderful colors God gave him.

Thanks Christine... this guy was so bold he would come within feet of us just sitting out in the open on the back porch... the reason I named him bold. He would even tell you off if you were too close.
