A second brood female adonis blue butterfly resting on a piece of long grass on the steep south facing slopes of Swelshill Bank in Stroud, Gloucestershire. V2 especially for Silly Sunday a very poor over exposed grab shot of some dancing fallow deer does at Ashton Court Estate in Bristol, I think they are practising for Strictly Come Dancing!

V2 is your usual master image while the dancing fawns are an instant
reaction capture that left no time to adjust iso. Very worthwhile though.
Rare thing to see! TG

Wonderful captures each one for a reason! V1 is a very well balanced capture in every aspect, V2 is attractive for the composition and the timing !

Whilst image two is a cracking capture, I love the quality and the clarity of image number one Ed. Studding colour and such a beautiful Butterfly.

Perfection in V1- exactly how I'd like to capture a butterfly!
The fallow deer look gorgeous - next time you'll get better light or have time to correct your settings.
