Hi Allan
Drove 60 miles to get some shots of the Silver washed fritillary, and Peacocks ... got home, and found the lot overexposed. The camera was on the wrong setting. If only I had ignored Andy Rouse and "chimped" I would have noticed. Difficult to take images of blue air!!!

Nice shot ... up to your usual high standard.
