Two more super butterfly shots, Ed. Of the two, V 2 seems to me to be just superb with the light showing up the colours and detail in both wings so beautifully.

My favourite of these two great shots is V2, you were right about the plant I have just never seen so many butterflies in one place. - gary

Two superb shots Ed. I think perhaps V2 just has the edge with that wonderful back lighting.

A fine pair here again Ed; if I had to choose between them, I'd have to go for #2 as well...Bill

What beautiful images with such beautiful detail and colours! Would settle with real pleasure to have either one in my pf, but V2 is just stunning with that wonderful backlight through the wings and gets my vote today.

Love both of these but particularly V2 (I seem to be following a trend there...) It has such lightness and delicacy. The word dainty has more or less gone out of use but that's what V2 says.
Getting on with daily life, then Dustin Hoffman turns up, screamer Ed
8 Sep 2010 10:53AM
Both really beautiful, but just slightly prefer V2, I have to follow the trend!
8 Sep 2010 11:38AM
Two cracking shots - I like v2 the most
