Sun Worshiper

By fishiee
This one is a Sooty Copper, wings open catching the sun as it burnt through the early morning fog towards the summit of Mount Ventoux in southern France. First time I'd seen these in France and they really lit up in the early sunshine!

Wondered where you had gotten too John Grin S'all right for some gallivanting off all over the continent, some of us have to stick with British species you know Sad Well what can I say about this wonderful image other than as you might have guessed I'm extremely green with envy! Oh yeah, I rather like the way you've managed to get him to sit up straight as though you have him begging like a dog.......Classy work as always mate, now get to my p/f and see what some of us lesser mortals have been up to.....LOL
