A bit like me, seen better days! But it's a great capture, Diane, very well done 👍 As I commented on Sylvia's butterfly upload, I spotted one fluttering by yesterday on looking through the window, but unfortunately, it didn't hang around to be photographed! 😬

It may be past its best but it still makes a beautiful image. The light brings out the wing detail very well.

A 'Cinderella' butterfly by the looks of the poor thing. It has its moment in the limelight thanks to your excellent shot.Smile

Alternative title: Flutterby...yeah, well, it's all I could think of.
Looks like it has been in a right royal battle, or is this the flutterby equivalent of split ends?Wink
