Beautifully captured. I can't remember the last time I saw anything like this - I mean butterflies, large moths, whatever - because of the dreadful weather.

Regards.

A really beautiful colourful and detailed example of native wildlife photography, which has all the right ingredients, mixed up to produce such a great image.
