Another nature shot from the archives.
We didn't seem to get out for walks this summer(wonder why)!
I didn't know what a Burnet moth looked before capturing this one,
so photography has been very educational for me in many ways.
Thank you for votes for Common Blue yesterday.

Good use of wide aperture, Kate, the moth and it's curving perch nicely separated from the b/g, concentrating attention on the subject.
