  1. All for me......perfect set.
    Have you got the new lens yet?

  2. HI Keith..A wonderful mixture it is!!
    Love the Bellflower, and the spotted Orchid!!
    The Robin is always pleasant to see and the emperor has those gorgeous colors!!
    Hugs my friend!

  3. There were lots of somethings for me, Keith. I think that's one of your best robin shots...a good angle and great detail. And, in the second picture, it looks as if that dragonfly is looking over his shoulder, right at you. A great set of images.

  4. Thanks Adrian.
    Yea, got the new lens. Another 100-400 mm zoom. The Robin is with that lens, (high ISO), the rest are with the old one before it died.

    Thank you Grace. I had a feeling you'd enjoy the flowers.
    Enjoy your weekend. :-)

    Thanks Linda. Glad you enjoyed them. :-)

  5. Superb set of images Keith...[;i)

  6. A beautiful day, I joke. You had a pleasant day so I can see, the Four Spotted Chaser and Emperor Dragonfly were my favourites.

  7. Lovely sunshine yellow to end a magnificent set of photos Keith! The Comma is particularly nice!
    Follow me at HEDGELAND TALES

  8. ooh, these are all beautiful! each one came up and i said 'that's my favorite. no, that's my favorite.' :)

  9. Keith, super series of shots!
    I think of all the British birds, I'd like to see the Robin the most! Born in Morecambe I was actually named for one!

  10. ALL terrific images, IM very impressed with that C. spotted orchid!! ;o)

  11. I'm still smiling, Robins on rose-hips have that effect on me. A lovely set of pictures indeed, orchid and harebell and all.

  12. a very nice series of pictures .. my favorite is the dragonfly
    regards Frank

    Thanks John. The damsels seem to have done well this year, despite all the wet weather.

    Its suprising to see so much colour during our horrendous summer, you did well here with these summer images

    I was fortunate enough to be able to get out on those sunny days the other week.
