A green veined white butterfly I saw deep down in the long grass at Prestbury Hill nature reserve near Cheltenham back in June. Due to the awful weather conditions this summer this species did not fare very well this year.

This is beautiful Ed - it's set off so well against those summery greens. I think I prefer v2 - is it ever so slightly sharper? (my untrained eye isn't brilliant!)

The weather this summer put paid to seeing any butterflies up here, Ed: another two fine captures with V 2 just ahead for me........fills the frame and I think the detail seems just that wee bit better recorded, but it could just be because it fills the frame more.

V2 looks sharper to me too, so for that reason I'll go with that one. Smile

V2 seems to be in the lead.
A lovely simple image in those soft colours - butterfly and surroundings
as one.

I agree with others, V2 is the better image in my humble opinion, more detailed.
