Very nice. They are quite common around here, but I've never managed to photograph one except in the distance. Here in Brittany it's said if the green woodpecker sings (well, it's a sort of croak, really) then it's going to rain. It's usually true, but it rains a lot here anyway They eat ants - very useful creatures.
Thank-you for comments.
Many thanks for comment. It was rather a nice little butterfly, but it seemed intent on staying in the most unphotogenic places. I did try various ways of cropping at the time but couldn't make anything of the picture, but yes, now that I look at it again, cropping some of the lower part out would make the picture less cluttered. Many thanks for the suggestion, if I get a chance I'll have another crack at it.
