Excellent detail and colours and the diagonal setting within the frame works well.

They do tend to be skittish Jennn but they do like to take time out in a sunny spot.

The gods must have been smiling upon you, Brian, to give you this opportunity!! You have taken full advantage of the moment too - stunning, detailed capture with terrific wing patterning,textures and colours. Razor sharp and composed to perfection. I have only seen (and managed to capture) one of these this year.

Oh - I wish I knew they were so rare this year! We had a couple in our garden for a few days on the sedum; I tried to get a few shots and had I known, would have tried harder! Smile This is stunning Brian - love the colour and detail.

I think one of us needs glasses Ade - no loss of sharpness on wing tips - it's pitched perfectly flat on the flower - its just that Comma's have no distinct markings on their wing tips.Smile

A flawless close up of this comma butterfly Brian, you've really nailed this one. The detail and colours are immaculate. I haven't seen very many this year but I did get some pics of one that visited my garden the other week. Nothing wrong with the wing tips, they don't have any defined edges anyway, methinks the Big O has been on the Stowford Press again and the old mince pies are a tad glazed! lol WinkGrinTongue
