I wasn't happy with the way my White Horse shots looked when I uploaded them, so will revisit them and try again some other time, instead I have posted a shot of a Tree Nymph Butterfly from the Studley grange Butterfly farm, at Wroughton, just outsidre Swindon.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks all.
Ian, I know what you mean about if being a little tight, I would have liked to have taken a step back but I was up against a large bannana plant at the time and had to take the shot from there, this was as it came out the camera!!

You have captured the wing texture beautifully Phil. Large V shows it well. It is a little tight in the frame but I have read your explanation why.

I did catch a glimpse of your white horse shot before you changed it. I thought it good and look forward to seeing the reworking.

You probably did make the right decision to change though as this image is absolutely stunning. Really love the detail, the colour the background, just everything really.
