A head on shot of a male Dark Green Fritillary Argynnis aglaj

Went to Barnack this morning, but not a single Chalk Hill to be seenSad
Might pop over to Twywell later, to see if the Essex Skippers are out to play

Belated thanks to Don (DonMc) for his award given to the last pair of MW's I uploaded

A cracking head on take, Adrian: stands out so clearly against that pale green uniform b/g.
Top notch work as always from your stable.

It's the collection of groundsheets from Next and bed sheets from Debenhams that provide those clear/uncluttered backgrounds Kate!WinkGrinTongue You will need to get them in a number of different colours if you are to get images as good as the tomcat's though!Wink

Just good use of DOF Kate and the performance of the 100mm IS that does the trick + the in camera settings of course

Being mindful of the light also comes into play

My errant nephew is way off the mark this time, when it comes to my butterfly imagesSmile
