At last I got him!!! A pearly heath or Coenonympha arcania, sitting pretty between the deep weeds in the Argentine meadow .
Took it on the way to work yesterday, only wanted to check whether the water had gone in one of my preferred spots and then I was late Blush

Many thanks to those who commented on Sunday's flop, well I guess what I like is not always what you like

Many on here would not regard getting 31 votes as a flop but it is a fact butterflies are preferred to people! This is a fine example of good macro photography Annette.

A fine shot Annette.
And regarding Sundays ''flop''.
I just reckon some members are ''missing'' on a Sunday.
Must have other fish too fry I reckon.
(Perhaps for the Sunday dinner !!)

Sunday's was most definitely not a flop. Not to me. I loved it. If you're going by votes, what Mick said is right: the weekend is the worst time. Also, some themes just get more attention, like landscape, floral, etc.

Gorgeous shot you've got here! A superbly captured beaut, blessed with such an artistic background and surroundings Smile
