Late posting eh! As a fellow Welsh nightowl I can be the first to comment Grin
I thought v1 was great with the focus spot on and the exposure expertly handled and then I sae v2 which complements v1 so well. Beautiful images and worthy of framing side by side.

V 1 is very original with the wings so closely approximated, but my preference is with V 2 for the full display, detail and colour, Fred.
