Never seen one of these, only heard about them. What a fantastic shot, with such great detail. Congratulations you must be so patient to have caught it this close up. Good camera I say.

I've seen these in France - where and when were you lucky enough to see this in Wigan?

A terrific shot. Perhaps a little more DOF would have got more detail.

Hello John, I'm not Cyril Ashurst, my surname begins with a B. :¬)
Must have had its thermals and a mac on this summer.
