Nice one Dave. I like the Orange tip for it's wing pattern and furry body. Yes, I can see the egg.

How stunning is that? Fantastic as far as the technology is concerned to be able to take such a close up photo and amazing to be able to see such a wonderful miracle as the laying of an egg of such a delicate species. Thank you so much for your skill Dave, it really brings nature into our increasingly technological age.

What a high quality picture in every way !


Comment by bluechieftain2 on 1st June 2009 at 01:06
This is very nice, but if I want pictures of insects, birds or flowers I can go elsewhere on the internet. Why can't we have photographs of WIGAN here?


Comment by David on 1st June 2009 at 05:54
Excellent deatail and bokeh.


Comment by Ron D on 1st June 2009 at 10:10
bluechieftain2 This is as much apart of Wigan as a half derelict building. Well executed and very pleasing.


Comment by Jacks on 1st June 2009 at 10:54
What a fantastic photo - wish I had a better camera !


Comment by maureen andrews on 1st June 2009 at 12:26
That is absolutely breathtaking.


Comment by JDH on 1st June 2009 at 15:25
Brilliant Dave. (Unless my eyes deceive me this section is called "Photo-a-Day" not "Photo-a-Day-of-Wigan")


Comment by Dave on 1st June 2009 at 19:57
Thanks for the feedback and nice words folks :)


Comment by bluechieftain2 on 1st June 2009 at 22:41
I agree it's a fantastic photo, sharply detailed and superbly conceived in every respect. But it could have been taken anywhere. On "Photo-a-Day" on this WIGAN site I expect to see a photo which is identifiably of WIGAN.Next time, try to get a butterfly, a bird, an insect or whatever, against the background of some view which is recognisably of WIGAN.


Comment by Julie on 1st June 2009 at 23:04
WOW, what a fantastic photo, wish I could take them as good, brilliant!


Comment by christine bishop on 2nd June 2009 at 21:36

Truly amazing - There's no pleasing some people is there?? A photo of the gorgeous wildlife we have in Wigan.....What do you want? A ribbon round its neck saying "born & bred in Wigan"
