Another Painted Lady, similar to and taken at the same time as one posted a week or so ago. This time I've put the cropped version up first.
V2 shows a Bee that was close.
V3 is straight out of the camera with only sensor dust spots removed

Hi Allan
Drove 60 miles to get some shots of the Silver washed fritillary, and Peacocks ... got home, and found the lot overexposed. The camera was on the wrong setting. If only I had ignored Andy Rouse and "chimped" I would have noticed. Difficult to take images of blue air!!!

Nice shot ... up to your usual high standard.
