The first pair of butterflies I have spotted and captured this year, with a not very pleasing background, though. Still very much in a state of unrest here, I'm afraid, and not a lot of time to spend on ePZ, so still only voting for now. Thank you all for being so patient and understanding.

Hmmm.....Very envious at the fact you just walk out into your garden and can nail images like this Carol Sad It's just not cricket you know! Sad
Other than seeing a single Holly Blue last w/e I haven't seen any other Blues this year as yet. They say were having a drought over here at the moment, despite it seeming to have rained constantly for what seems the last month. Bloody annoying or what?

Well done mate, keep em coming.....

Well captured, Carol, the bg is nicely out of focus and doesn't detract at all for me. v1 for me.

Two stunning close ups Carol, the detail, colours and clarity are exceptional. These blues you've uploaded today beat my pair of orangetips hands down. I wouldn't worry about the background it is fine, it is much better than the background in my shot where the butterflies were deep down in long grass

I have the same problem. They're to quick for me, or I'm to slow for them, so I am really impressed by the outstanding quality of these shots.
