Stunning shot as always Nigel, the colours, texture and clarity are outstanding, a faultless image of a beautiful specimen deserved of a UA from me. Regards, Andy

A stunning close up of this beautiful blue butterfly, the detail and colouring is immaculate. This is obviously a very recently emerged specimen as it looks so pristine
