  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Thanks Neil
    Thanks Andy - they are certainly out in force this year. Not one I often see myself so pleased to get it.
    Thanks

    Nice. I particularly like the 2nd and 3rd of the bee fly. The St Mark's fly is good too. I've seen quite a few of these flopping around in the past couple of days but I don't think I got a half decent shot of any of them.
