Well I thought my pair of Orange Tips I posted today was fairly good Ben, but you've blown me away with this! Well done to you mucker, another one for your Dad to try and emulate Tongue

A beautiful backlit brimstone Ben, you've caught some wonderful light through its wings and the colour is spot on
