First off, thank you all SO much for your comments and advice on what SLR my friend Karen might get for her hubby for Christmas SmileSmile

Second, I love the response and comments on the tattooed car. Ta Grin

-----

Now thenÖhere are some shots from yesterday of a butterfly which thankfully wasnít too flitty when I tried to get some shots of it. He seems to be missing a couple of bits, though. Battle scars, I imagine, but at least he survived to see another day or two Smile

It is about 2cm long and Iím quite sure itís a Cycad Blue (Chilades pandava pandava).

V1 for me Andrew - damage is hardly visible - I think its such a shame when beautiful butterflies get damaged.

Wow Andrew, wat a stunning set, but be careful - you'll be posting as many as me soon! Super series and all the better for this beauty being battle scarred.

What a little charmer, Andrew. I am very drawn to V6 with the butterfly and flower bud, a lovely combination.

Wonderful set Andrew.

Sadly, I can never manage to photograph them as I think they see my coming and flutter away! Sad

I missed these yesterday - don't quite know how - they're excellent and I love v1! He has such fine detail and a lovely pose. I'm glad he's still flitting around despite his disabilities. Smile
