Speckled Wood

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz

Thank you for all your wonderful comments messages and votes following my upload of 'Blue' yesterday. A further mention going to CarolG (Carol) and Chinga (Isabel) Todays image of a Speckled Wood Butterfly was captured only moments after capturing the Blue so I was rather chuffed.

My afternoon with the Outlaws went very well with them heading of too Brighton for a couple of days knowing that I was being looked after.

The weather for today and the rest of the week doesn't look to clever so I shall have to get out when I can.

I hope that you have a wonderful day.

Regards NathanGrinGrinGrin

I'd be 'chuffed', too, if I'd managed this one, Nathan.
Excellent detail you are getting from that macro lens of yours.

Excellent capture with wonderful detail and natural colouring, Nathan.

I'd be well pleased to catch the Butterfly so well, they always seem to vanish just as I'm about to drop the shutter.

Lovely image Nathan - they must know you're there waiting for them.
we see very few varieties in Scotland and you've found two in as many days.
The fresh leaves make this extra appealing.

A lovely image Nathan, the butterfly looks as though it is sunning itself. Don't think it will get much chance to do that this week.

I have never managed to capture a decent shot of a butterfly. This is lovely Nathan. Hope your weather holds off for an hour at least today. Ours looks promising, but it's still 4:45am here.
