Great photos .D.,

Stone flies are not the prettiest of creatures at the best of times, your pair(ing) are amongst the worst I've seen.  Good one.

Thanks. That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me :angel;.

Duly inspired I picked up another couple of rather enchanting beauties on the riverbank today. (I think they're Empididae but I'm not that hot on flies)





Cheers,
