Cor!!! That's a lovely detailed flight picture Stanley. Excellent work my friend.

We don't have a flight image for this species in The Opus as yet, so I'll upload this one shortly.

Many thanks for your message, I was rather hoping those were the subspecies I was thinking of.... I'll sort the picture captions later on.

Cheers lad.
