You just ain't looking in the right places Tongue

You do have a point actually, it's the lack of sun we've been having more than anything else, but they are there to be found if you're lucky enough to get any of that bright thing in the sky.....

Beautiful capture. I have only seen one Peacock butterfly so far this year. It was just as I pulled into the carpark at the Hermitage at Dunkeld. Grabbed camera, but it was gone by the time I got out of the car Sad.
