Stanstead Estate - West Sussex.


A small section of the vast forest area.

Non macro Peacock and underwing.

Drove on to the garden centre where I got hooked on macro again.

Cropped of previous cropped photo – I am not sure of the I.D. but could be a Parastic fly

Honey bee – the final shot is my personal favourite.
