Yes Peter but Carol puts mine to shame, how does one compete with these. An excellent set Carol. Superb photography. Would have got my award but gave it to another butterfly image.

Yay Carol, all those lectures you have been giving the butterflies about the photographic 'rules' stating that things have to be grouped in odd numbers have paid off in version two. Well done you and well done those butterflies for taking notice. They didn't get it quite right in version three though.

Excellent set.

Nice one catching THREE in V2! And of course this upload wouldn't be complete without V3, eh? Wink
