Wonderful clarity, great colour and a marvellously well shown pattern.

Excellently caught... in the throws of butterfly passion!

The clarity of the markings is superb and I like the composition.

Nice one.

Knew this was gonna be yours before I opened it, don't ask why?.....Think you must be developing your own style mate!
Superb image, the eye is crying out for a crop, a bit like Tim (Celestun) does!

Hey Luke,

Very nice shot. Detail is great, looks like it should be in a Dr Dolittle movie, similar to the Pushme-Pullme Llama.
