Viewing here - itís the perfectly exposed and out of focus backdrop that helps to bring out the best in this natural history shot. Add to this the large skipper butterfly with the excellent backlighting on the wings.

Again - one not to walk past without taking a shot. Ticks all the boxes for me Ed.

Dave.
