Hi everyone.

Reginaldo - What can I say about such magnificent pictures of Mother Nature at work, simply "stunning"!

Please don't ever stop them coming, as I'm sure everyone else appreciates them as much as I.

All the best, Nev.

Thanks Reginaldo!

Amazing how nature can get some spider to exactly match the colour and even texture of the flowers they sit on. Here we have some stunning Mantis that are the same pink as flowers are predate any insect that lands there!

Keep sending in those photos.

Thanks.
