Good detail in these Ed - I always think it's a shame when they start to look ragged in the wings though.

Four excellent images from the 'Butterfly King', cannot pick a favourite as they are all equal in their excellence!
Rgds., Jim
PS. Excuse me not going back over all your uploads since I was last on here Ed, just so far behind with everything, and trying to do true justice to all only makes things worse, I assure you I've had a look though, and can see you're maintaining your usual high standards.
