Two beauties, very well taken and worked.

I thought two together was unlikely, but you've done it very well indeed.

So expertly done Brian, I'd never have guessed this one was put together in photoshop. I love the pin sharp detail and glorious eyecatching colours in this one. I'm eagerly anticipating the one of nine red admirals on the buddleia bush, it shouldn't be too much to expect from a man of your undoubted calibre!Wink

No chance Ed - easy to count them - not so easy to photograph en mass - they are always flitting around disturbing one another.

Quality image and capture as always Bri Wink

A big thankyou to Jane ( Snapitt) for her User Award - much appreciated.

Thanks to all .

I merged rather than used variants because I felt it was an easier and more informative way to convey the colours and the different sizes of the two butterflies.
