Award Shortlist   


By PhilG_DPAGB  
was pleased to find another site for the SS blues in the New Forest after the disasterous loss of my previous site through controlled burning of the heath. This pair of males were just settling for the night and were in lovely soft evening light for about 2 minutes. real job getting a clear background - hence widish aperture of f8 ' 30th sec. iso 200 RAW

As a general rule wen going to roost - butterflies put their pyjamas on - turn upside down - say night,night and go to bo bo's. Just like Australians I suppose. PhilG.
