These tiny butterflies are enjoying the wild thyme flowers, one of the wild blooms that is surviving the dryness and heat we are experiencing at present.

Both images excellent, Carol, with the closer inspection in V 2 possibly my preferred one: fine detail and bright natural colours.

Two cracking close ups Carol, the detail and colours are sublime and you've captured its wing markings quite beautifully. Warm sunny weather is forecast from tomorrow so that should please epz's weatherman the Tomcat, I predict that by by mid next week he'll be moaning that it is too hot!WinkGrin
