This is the first time I have spotted and captured a dusky heath, I hope you like him.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone, I'm off to the beach today to swim and soak up the sunSmile

Pin sharp and beautiful set. How could you mention the words "beach, swim & sun" when we seem to be drowning in endless downpours and have more or less forgotten what "sun" looks like Tongue

You've captured this butterfly's colours and markings perfectly Carol. Are you sure this is not a wall brown, or is a dusky heath another name you Cretians give to this species?
