Very nicely presented,you have captured some nice texture in the stump,feels like you can almost reach out and feel it..

That stump makes an excellent subject in itself, Gill: good detail and textures in the stump, but the bluebells seem incidental.
Another view focussing on the forest floor itself to show off the bluebells but with the stump in the f/g as a smaller feature, perhaps to one lower corner, would make a nice view too IMHO.

A lovely crop of bluebells with the butterfly providing a strong colour point of contrast, Gill.

An excellent composition to show off the bluebells in a different way.
the butterfly is lovely contrasting touch but even without it this image
would be a winner in my eyes.

I really like your composition in this one -- emphasizing the textures of that stump AND -- great timing on the butterfly.

Morning Gill, this is amongst the best bluebell wood shots so far, a different perspective, very well composed and with the extra splash of colour from the butterfly... Very nice indeed.

The shape of the tree stump and that of the out spread wings of the butterfly quite similar, nice to have the solid mass of the wood against the soft carpet of bluebells.

Nice detail in the old stump on display also. (that 17-40L has never let you down)

A beautiful image of spring, the inclusion of the peacock butterfly adds so much. It was a pity there weren't a few more bluebells in the foreground, but that can't be helped
