Great Composition Tim. Really works well. The contrast of the butte4rfly against the Rosmery really sets it off and great backlighting too. Are they still on the wing even now?

Will be working on holiday plans for next year over the next couple of months. Hoping for one or possibly even two weeks in your paradise there next year Smile
