Many, many thanks for the tremendous response to yesterday's upload of a Snakeshead fritillary, I was so pleased that it went down so well.

I hope you like tonight's upload equally, captured yesterday at Stanton Park, Swindon.

Thank you for looking.

Oh, Phil, you really deserve the HC for this one, well done, it's wonderful. I'm so glad I'm not the only one to recognise outstanding photography (I do wonder sometimes). And you've nearly got as many votes as the image before this one, and I have no doubt you will get some more. You must be very pleased.
