A Dusky Heath butterfly shows off it's silver lining...
... on a twist of dried grass...
These little butterflies are very easily spooked and it takes them ages to settle again... if you so much as twitch a hair on your arm... so I was very happy to finally get one this close!
Stunning close uo detail captue, love the colours.
I wonder if you have actually excelled yourself with this one !! Wow!
1st class photography Tim.
Absolutely gorgeous !!! a brilliant macro with great detail,well captured.
Superb. What a stunning butterfly, first time ive seen one of these.
Love the dof here Tim,makes it seem like the Butterfly is coming right out of the screen into my room,gorgeous bg which compliments the subject so very well.
Stunning image, excellent isolation and detail.
Thanks Beik! A real honour from you and my favourite type of award!
Thank you all for your very kind words!
Beautifully captured! Large Version proves how good this is.
Wow, this is utterly brilliant, probably the best butterfly shot Ive seen in ages. You deserve an award for this - I will be amazed if you dont get a premier award. You will get my user award for the week as soon as I can give it. Angi
Gosh Angi, you're way too kind, but I really like the attention!
All of the above. Brilliant butterfly capture. I've got to buy a macro lens, and I've got to hunt down some butterflies. Talk about butterfly inspiration........Sandy
This is gorgeous. A butterfly shot that works well from a macro/nature point of view and is also hugely satisfying aesthetically. Love it.
Thanks for your award Sandy! ... wow I must say I never thought this one would capture so much attention!
Lovely macro shot.
This is going to get my award when it becomes available, Tim. It's exquisite - a real gem and a delight to view.
Just had to come back and tell you that you have inspired me with this shot, butterflies here I come, .
Hmmmm, photo of the week maybe?
A truly stunning butterfly photo with out-of-the ordinary colours. A welcome change from the usual green background and lush vegetation.
yu've got yourself a creacker here, it's lovely & the detail excellent, the final icing on the cake i=s the grass it's on, very pictorial shot to
fabulous, the butterfly, dried grass and the Bg just all work together brilliantly.one for my shortlist too.lesley
Wow! I love it.
Superb Tim... love the DOF... a wonderful peice of grass... great photography
What a beautiful butterfly, and beautifully captured too! The dof used is stunning with a wonderful bg and the composition is superb.
Wonderful - shortlisted.
This is quality.
A fantastic close up of this beautiful butterfly, you've raised the bar yet again. This one is exceptional even by your very high standards
Like your images very much,i wish here were more bflies to shoot
Superb and very attractive shot.... delightfully arty!
A beautiful detailed shot Tim, great comp.
Thanks again to all of you for your incredibly kind comments!
Thanks Karen and Ian for the awards. A real honour!
Ian hilarious design too!
If I had to choose one of yours it would very probably be this one. Very possibly your best
Fabulous image. Sylvia
Thanks Mandy! I am truly honoured to feature so prominently on your award list!
Well done Tim.......It would have had my award mate, but I've just given it to the enemy (Matt Berry) for his swallowtails! That's 3 awards I could have given out this morning.
Superb shot Tim. The background colours really complement the butterflies and the detail is superb. I never did get a decent shot of these even if my images can be saved. One to target next year
If I knew what this award thingy was I'd gladly award you one. This is beautiful Tim.
Found the award thingy.
A truely wonderful picture Tim, beautifully framed and with the most wonderful colouring. The butterfly leaps out of the page in it's brilliance and the twist of grass couldn't have had a better shape if it had been painted.
There have been some glorious photographs this week, but I have no doubt that yours is the pick of the bunch.
Congratulations and keep up the good work.
Thanks Ade & John... and Malcolm now that you've worked it out you can give me the award then!
James you're award and especially your kind comments mean a great deal. It's been very encouraging I must say to get all this great feedback!
Thanks to all of you again!
Truly wonderful the detail,perch,colour composition oh just all of it is simply superb - Ina
Stunning!! Not just a macro shot with detail- its truly a work of art.
Worthy too of all those awards and the HC
Congratulations on an amazing shot!
Thanks Tom (toffee) for your award! I really do appreciate these user awards!
Thanks also to Brian, Ina and Helen!
I missed this one, outstanding as a photograph let alone the capturing the butterfly. Brilliant. If you ever run a course or a day out I'd come along! Chris
If you ever head down this way I'd be happy to show you the ropes... although there are so many butterflies you'd probably find yourself wandering off!
Thanks Angi for your award... sorry it took me while to notice!
I really do appreciate it coming from such a magical photographer as yourself!
