Wow, Steve...as per usual, some amazing shots of a beautiful creature.

I've never seen such a flame skimmer before... so thanks for sharing.

The colours (eg bright orange contrast with green) is simply stunning.

Paul

Excellent job on all of those. I don't think I have seen that species down here.

Very nice images Steve. I photograph these quite often but hard to catch them against dark background as you did nicely.

Thank you Steven, Saly and Banksy for taking a look and your nice comments.

Saly, we have a tall row of Oleanders in the backyard and I was shooting into the shadows of the Oleanders. It work out pretty well to cast a dark background. Thanks again,

Steve
