Nice shot!
I like how the "dogface" is so clearly visible with the backlighting.

Thank you
Hannah, I have to admit, before I had this shot, and before reading the info page in the guide, I was trying to find a dog face in the white spots:\ Had a Malachite come get a drink in the sand when I was watering the other day, no pics, I could have kicked myself, I was suprised that in flight, from a distance, they resemble some of the sulphurs.
