Much as he tried, Bob couldn't lift the stick
Nope, it's just no fun throwing a stick for your pet flutterby to fetch! :-)
This speckled wood led me a merry dance up on the disused railway line, until it settled on this stick and let me get in close for some decent shots. Prior to this I took many shots of it just in the process of taking off... it seemed to know telepathically when I was about to press the shutter button. Nice thing about these ones though is their territorial nature - they will usually re-alight in the same vicinity!
