Found this meadow brown sitting on a leaf early this morning. It stayed still long enough for me to get some sharp shots.

It's times like this I wish I could upload a larger version as 1000 pixels doesn't really do it justice - the detail in the full sized file is pretty amazing.

It reminds me of a lion, hence the title.

Thanks for looking,

Steve.

Hi Steve, there are thousands of butterfly images doing the rounds right now, but I have seen none quite as detailed as this during my tenure as guest editor, quite incredible as you say a larger version would be well worth seeing.

Best Matt
