A well coloured shot Jenn.
And I understand the difficulties with sports/action.
I was asked to photograph an old age pensioners bowling match last year,
and I was exhausted keeping up with them !!

Pin-sharp and very beautiful. Wish we had a few butterflies to chase after as there's been such a lack this "summer"!

An extremely impressive macro-photograph Jenn, which you have captured the gorgeous colours and detail of this rather handsome looking Painted Lady Butterfly, so very well indeed.

The buddleia shows him off so well. I've only seen about four or five butterflies here this year.
