I watched this ragged red admiral butterfly yesterday drying itself off on my apple tree as it slowly came to life. Wonder where the poor thing is today in all this rain!

Thanks for looking.

Nice use of dof. It's a red admiral not a tortoiseshell though Smile

Fortunately, they have ways of hiding from the bad weather! I like the spotlight effect you have created here. Nice and sharp too.

Like the vignetting effect in this, it really helps to draw the viewer into the picture.
