Hi Nigel & Mike! I've been inundated with weddings all summer long, I never expected to be so overloaded, but it's been fun too!

Cheers,

Tim

A stunning image to herald your return Tim, the details and colours on this beautiful butterfly are sublime, and as always the light is wonderful. I thought you'd gone into early hibernation after the abysmal summer we've had, our coldest since 1988!Wink I hope it's been better for you further South as the North of France has experienced weather similar to ours. It's a rare fine day tomorrow and I'm not working so I'll be off to Rodborough Common in Stroud to hunt for the elusive Adonis Blue, it will probably be my last outing of the year as the forecast for the next week is not good and I've plenty of work on, Ed

Thank you all for your lovely comments!

I wish I had the time to post more, but still can't get away from work...
