I spotted this male brown argus perched on the dried seed-head of a wild cistus hiding from the heat of the sun. I captured V.4 when he appeared briefly in the sun.
Have a sunny weekend, everyone Smile

An excellent set of beautifully captured images, each one crammed to the rafters with great colour and glorious detail. Version Number 1 steals the show today.

Lovely brown argos.
I've got one of those in my folder - not very common in Scotland.
I'm going for V3 today because there is less competition from the foliage.
