1 in 20 is not bad going, Moira: I have often come back with an even greater number and trashed the lot.
A very nice bright vibrantly coloured but natural shot of the peacock butterfly and it's perch, and so very nicely presented. I'd have been happy with this one myself.

Great shot, great presentation.

My keep rate for flies and things is less tah 1%, perhaps a tripod/monopod would improve things.
