Thank you all those of you who commented and voted on the Barn owl,very much appreciated,Todays image is dedicated to my youngest son Ben who passed away 7 years ago,today would have been his 26th birthday i don't normally do things like this as i think losing loved ones is a personal thing but today i feel really emotional and i just needed to get it out,hope you like the image,we are about to have a nice day out in the Elan valley and maybe pop into gigrin farm later,have a good day everyone,

John.

Benchmark photography John. An incredibly well captured and presented entomological image, capturing the very best of this gorgeous Butterfly.

An absolutely beautiful shot.

I'm very sorry to hear about your boy, and I hope you get through the day with lots of good memories of him to help counteract the sadness you must be feeling.
