Once again the back lighting is showing off the rich colours and detailed patterns in the wings so well.

Do you use any support for these shots, or are they hand held?

Thank you all for your extremely kind comments! and especially Ed and Gemma for the UAs!

Roger thanks, I like the freedom of no support, just elbows and the ground. I tend to be crawling around in awkward positions to get these shots! Smile but there is the trade off with sharpness, my shots are more about light and certainly far from pin sharp.

If I didn't have the stabilised lens things would be much worse!

Cheers,

Tim
