A very good series, Federick. The Banded Yeoman is outstanding.

You must have a good day :)
Even it is common, I like the last one with the feeding action.

Lovely captures Federick! Especially the Banded Yeoman and E. andersonii. Only time I got a chance to shoot the Banded Yeoman was when I was a newbie on my first jaunt to SF. Never have a chance to shoot them since. :-(

Thanks Richard, Yong and Bob for your kind comments.
Butts activities at CCA were low during my last two visits there.

Good harvest and nice opening wings BY shot. I still don't have chance to shoot it open winding in the wild.

Great set Federick, I like the Large Snow Flat. :cheers:

Crisp shot of the banded yeoman! These things r too fast for my cam shutter. From my previous experience, butts like the knight and banded yeoman fly too fast and too high to allow for a clear photo. How did u manage this?

Great series, Federick! :thumbsup: Interesting curly tails on the Common Posy. Looks like it just went for a perm on its tails, which are more often straight and not so curly as the specimen in your shot.
