Female orange tip

By HobbitDave
One from the archives, they are around at this time of year.

The version is just for curiosity.....its a plate camera photograph from 1885, ink writing on the reverse. It is of my grandmothers mother, with her mother! Serious time warp stuff. For my sons I think it makes the older lady their great x 4 grandmother? I enabled mods if anyone fancied trying to make it a bit clearer.

Thanks kindly for the votes and comments on young Winston, they are much appreciated and welcomed, and the kind awards given are really encouraging 🐈

That is beautiful and a butterfly I haven't seen in our neck of the woods. I must train my eyes Dave!

Send a few round here, Dave! 🦋🦋😃 A very lovely shot, and good use of depth of field, which makes the butterfly and flowers it's on really stand out, almost 3D-like 👍

A gorgeous butterfly Dave.
I hope someone can remove the grain from your wonderful old photo- it looks
in otherwise good condition.
