This instar stands out well against the red. Nice contrast.
Thanks! Yes it does work, Marc.
Wow!! Brilliant contrast..
Thanks very much.
Wonderful colors. It would make an unusual Christmas card.
Who’s looking forward to Christmas, then? Could it be Maralee I wonder?
Would the unusual part be that there isn’t anything Christmasy about the image, apart from the rowan berries resembling the colour of Santa’s outfit? 😉

Bright red…just another of nature’s vivid visuals for us and insects to enjoy. Cathy T.
