Here's another offering from the zoo which I couldn't resist uploading, just as I couldn't resist that awful title.

This is a common mime.

Not to be confused with uncommon mimes (otherwise known as rebel mimes) who are rather verbose and refuse to be trapped in glass boxes.

Truly awesome! I loved many of your previous offerings, but this has to be the very best yet. The light on the butterfly and the leaf is perfect - oh! and there's just a tiny wee shadow. Couldn't wish for more! You know what? I am about to give this my User Award. Cheers!

A splendid close up Andrew, Ann "Thorn" has summed this one so eloquently and far better than I could have done
