Amazing series, Alex. The 3rd photo reminded me with the Chopper " Helicopter ". Thanks for sharing.

Amazing sharpness for handheld shots, Alex. The sun has really helped you. I don't know which to pick as my fav - of course, #3's wing motion is super, but all the shots are brilliant too. Not only the insect, but the grains on the flower and the subtle lavendar have also come out very well. Very well done.
