Hi everyoneGrinGrin
Old fogey hereWinkTongueTongue.........I am back from my 50th birthday holiday in the Costa Del Sol, Had a fantastic timeGrinGrinGrin but its back to reality (has been since Sunday) but just cant seem to find any EPZ timeSadSad
Just thought I would let you see this one before it gets lost in the archives and to give me time to process some "Sol" shots.
I took this one in August, I think this is a "Peacock" butterfly and its definately on some yellow flowersWinkWink... Getting totally botanical in my "old age"BlushBlushBlush
Thankyou all very much for comments and birthday wishes on my last upload "The Great Big Hawaiian Sad........Grin
Hope to get back later, even if it has to be votes onlyTongue

Glad you aired this shot 'cos it's amazing. The sharpness and colour on that wing is WOW and the background is such a lovely softness!

Looking forward to your Sol shots, my Hawaiian friend.
