That is how it was taken CarolGrin

The only cropping done is to make the image 9" x 7", which I think is better for small close-up subjects, rather than the 9" x 6" as taken.
In other words the sides have been slightly reducedWink

A cracking close up of this copulating chalkhill blue couple, I saw a pair at it on Bownham Common but they wouldn't stay still long enough to be photographed!
