    Hi NatureFootstep. How did you guess!

    Thank you Mimmi.

    Hi Pia. Thank you. Have been chasing a few more 'damsels' today before the rain sets in over the weekend.

    Hi Mary. Rain is due which might dampen the spirits slightly this weekend but I'll do my best. Cheers FAB.

  8. Wow, awesome image! A most stunning butterfly against the green leaf. Love the little fly off to the left.

  11. Underbara foton du visar på fjärilar och fåglar. Tack för din kommentar hos mig. Anita

  12. Hi Rebecca. I'll admit that I wasn't aware the fly was in the frame when I pressed the button but it added to the composition!

    Hej Anita. Tack för att du besöker och kommentera.

  13. Hi there - thanks for the comment about my Blue Tiger. Your Speckled Wood is pretty special as well.

    Have you read "The Butterfly Isles" by Patrick Barkham? - splendid book about trying to see all of the UK's butterflies in a single year. I put a review of it on Amazon UK if you are interested.
