Whilst on a walk through the local gardens, I came across a small group of 2 or 3 Painted ladys flying in and out of a bed of flowers, This one was aside the rest and allowed me to get a few good shots.


Hope you like it.

Amazing shot! Great colours and detail. I also like how there is a small thread of light the the lower part of the wings. Very well captured.

A lovely image, well presented, the flowers are lovely, too, but tend to take the eye away from the subject. However, you cannot choose where these land !
