Great shot Tim. I see you are experimenting with the flash now. I tried a similar thing with my first ever Small Pearl Border Fritillary last night. Wont be home till Monday to check them out on the PC but look good on the camera Smile

Saw my first English Glanville Frits today. Loads of them. Very windy and most were past their best so don't think I got anything great. Hunting for Marsh Frits tomorrow to try and make it 3 new british species in 3 days!

Thank you all for your very generous words!

John, actually I just covered the flash with a small reflector to get this shot. So there's no flash at all, just diffuse sunlight from the sunset. I think fill flash is too intense to leave any decent backlighting... Although here it was too late in the day to get very much anyway... at least they're much easier to photograph then!

There's a few Pearl-bordered Frits. over here now too. Good luck with the new British species!
