Small Copper

By CaroleS
Two grab shots, as we had just come home and found this little beauty enjoying the garden in our absence. The only Small Copper I have seen this year.
With V2 I know the focus is not spot on, but it did show the lovely wing span.

A big thank you to netta1234 and TrevBatWCC for their User Award on Misty Blue.

Two superb images, Carole, I would like to see V.2 rotated clockwise, so that the butterfly is looking up, as a third version. Carol

Beautiful light in v1, Carole, the spotlight effect makes it a stronger image than v2.

Good shots Carole and you have to be praised for allowing visitors in your garden when you are absent.
If I came home and found visitors in mine,they would be grabbed by the scruff of their necks and thrown out.
And I would not care a jot if it was the first time I have saw them this year !!

So lovely seeing the beautiful inside of the wings in V2, Carole. And that is one amazingly razor sharp shot in V1, especially for a grab! Niiice Smile
