A gorgeous Demoiseille on a lovely contrasting perch.
I do want to take away the lower blade of grass though as your b/g is perfect.
V2 - well I've seen it all now! A very silly label for silly Sunday!

A well detailed shot here Ed.
And is it just the label you wash,
and not the polo shirt !!

I'm afraid my things have to be a lot dirtier than dirty before I wash them.
