Good afternoon folks,
A change of subject today. As it's been a bit slow on the bird front over the last
few weeks I thought I would share with you a Peacock butterfly I photographed a
couple of weekends back. I also pictured a Comma but this beauty rather shouted
out "spring is here", to me.
Many thanks for the C&C's on yesterday's Nutty.
Colin
