Good afternoon folks,
Another image from yesterday's safari.
Here is a Britannicus in all it's glory.
Again it's the same butterfly as before, but in the more usual pose for
this species.
I did intend to have another go today, but it's been rather overcast here in Norfolk.
Thanks for looking and for he C&C's on yesterday's effort.
Colin

Too bleeding hot down on the Somerset Levels, lots of dragons flying around, but couldn't get close to any of them Sad In fact the only thing I came home with was sunburn......whinge, whine, moan.....

It's butterflies like these that make me wish I lived in Norfolk, what a cracker, although I do find it just a little tight in the frame, well you didn't expect me to say it was perfect surely Tongue
