Still seeing butterflies yesterday, but have woken this morning to rain, gale force winds and a thunderstorm Sad
I wonder if the butterflies can survive this time?

V1 is a real ripper Carol, this is yet another fine set from you. I don't think I shall be seeing any more butterflies this year, we had a cold frost the other night so those red admirals I saw the other day will probably have gone back into hibernation

Have to agree with the majority re. V 1 but V 3 is also excellent, the detail in the body and far wing so clear.
