Stunning shots - I've already told you, it's not the flowers that are attracting the butterflies. It's the opportunity to have their photo taken by you!!!

A beautiful set Carol. If I had to choose one it would be V4. I know the head is obscured but the colours and textures of the upper wings are really amazing.

Carol, I don't know where to start these are so good. So maybe I can be a little technical as I want to extend my skills - what lens, tripod...etc???

All lovely images of this little blue. I've had one queen eclose, but it has managed to fly down behind my desk, and has not come out Sad there are two more in my little tent - no flowers outside, but they do seem to take sugar water. I hope they will go and hibernate till spring when I let them out......unseasonably cold here this year.

All four images are the result of your gifted skills.
The detail is simply amazing and I studied V1 for ages, before I noticed there were three more, all equally as good.
When does the book come out?!
