Sorry to hear you're struggling with your health at the moment John. Your certainly not letting any issues get in the way of your photography, some excellent photos here & a few species I've never seen before.

I've been enjoying looking in at your photos on a regular basis since the hovers started to re-appear - well since you started to find them reappearing - I've not seen too many. I'm hoping to get on here more frequently now contributing sightings & for help with ID's.
