Not perhaps the best butterfly image in the world, but I did like how the colours contrasted reasonably well.

Apologies if I'm just making votes and the odd comment here and there I'm up to my armpits at the moment with Hedgehogs, Foxes and Moths.....Wouldn't have it any other way Tongue

A splendid specimen Ade, the detail and colours are simply glorious. This is much better than any of the shots of this species that i've managed this year

It was the colour contrasts which struck me - and always do. Beautifully done and keep up the good work on the hedgehogs and foxes front!

The detail looks to be very good and it does show up against the yellow blooms very effectively, Ade.

The butterfly sits so nicely against the bright yellow flowers, showing off its outline beautifully, Ade, and its detail is very nice too.

Good sighting of foxy tonight. Can I put a vote in for the current webcam angle?

A beautifully composed and captured Butterfly. Pin sharp focusing, gorgeous detail, and wonderful natural colours in abundance.

A fine example of a speckled wood, Ade, and as you say, the contrasting colours are perfect. Carol
