A fine selection of butterflies, Ed, and like Moira V 1 and 2 stand out for me, both for detail, lighting and colours.

Quite wonderful! Got so excited on Sunday when I saw at last just 2 little butterflies in my garden. Goodness knows how they've survived given the cold and the constant rain!

very nice series and..
no 7 for me !!!
the orange tip goes so well with his hairy white and green perch, it would make a nice poster on its own.
