A male common blue butterfly basking in the summer sunshine on the cliff tops at Sand Point near Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset. This was one of a number of species I saw on a day out last Monday. Many thanks for all your c&c's on the Crickley Hill Chalkhill Blue and to AdeOsman for the user award, it is greatly appreciated, Ed

Good composition - diagonally against a green abstract which includes those delightful little green stars!

Such a lovely place to walk, but when we went in June I saw nothing of butterflies - maybe I was too interested in everything else going on around me.
Well spotted and captured Ed SmileSmile

A rather fantastic macro photograph Ed, crammed packed full of gorgeous natural colours, superb detail, which enhances the beauty of this rather handsome looking 'Sand PointBlue Butterfly' so very well indeed. A real gem, and one of which I greatly admire.

1st class Ed, Sorry I will not be able to make tomorrow as I have two vehicles booked in for platings and will take up a big part of the day, I am quite disappointed as it would have been nice to catch up.
