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.
