Superbly detailed David and a good bg - I never managed a shot of one of these in the clear like this - always in hedgerow clutter.

Stunning detail David - pin sharp with superb body tones and patterning and lovely translucent wings. Love the thorny textures of the perch and the clean warm bg tones.
