A few more shot's of the Common Blue Butterfly featured in yesterday's upload.

Despite the weather, very strong winds and showers, I was pleased with the results I finished with....although I must admit to having a great collection of wind blurred shots or even empty frames where the butterfly was blown right out of the frame!!.

Thanks for looking.

Stunning shot Phil. I think I prefer version 3. Butterfly is excellent but that shot does more justice to the flower.
