Lovely soft warm colour from the backlighting, Carol, and bright detail in v3, but v1 well chosen for the lead.

Overcast/fair here today, with the odd raindrop or two - +17C and only a slight breeze

V3 is my personal favourite Carol V1 is sharp where it needs to be but the perch is rather over exposed, I guess you had a bright sunny day! sometimes cannot be avoided - the backlighting on the butterfly works really well - great work all told
