It does not show so much here, but this Queen (Danaus gilippus thersippus) did have to cling on!

Many thanks to all who visited the fence and commented and voted.. Gates, as it is rural common knowledge, are to be left as you find them. Never open a gate on a farm unless you close it immediately and you got a good reason to do so.

Three very good images despite the windy conditions with V 1 rightly set in the presenting slot.
Agree totally about farm and countryside gates.......my comment yesterday was in a photographic context only as I am sure you'll appreciate.
