This shot of a female Escher's Blue, was taken at the same location and time as yesterdays, on the verge of a high Alpine lane on the Cols de Fillys on a wonderful warm summers morning (sadly now last year).

A peach of a shot Paul, you've captured her colours and wing markings quite beautifully

Hi Paul,

Nice capture, they never seems to stand still look enough for me, but then I do usually use my 16 -35 mm Wink

Paul can I suggest a different crop to remove the blue from the bottom right hand side and some of the empty space around the Escher's Blue. I've made this adjustment in the mod and altered the tone slightly by selecting "Auto Tone", sometimes, just sometimes the auto functions work well (to my eye's) Grin and it's something I try as the first adjustment 50% of the time, you can always step back.

Good capture Paul.

Take care
Martin
