Another excellent butterfly. Can't see how it could be improved. Beautiful colors.

You must be having a wonderful summer.

Well, this is a beauty but you have much better ones. Just following your work in admiration, waiting for you to post another one everyday.

Fantastic work Tim. Truly inspirational, I wish I could reach this level.


PS - hate to say it, but it's not a Brown Argus but a Common Blue. Doesn't detract from a great shot.

Thanks to all for the kind comments! Far too generous, as Berk said, I think this is not one of my best submitted so far...

Yes Edward, I was getting ready to resubmit this photo when it got the EC, so I thought I better leave it even with the mistake!

You are of course totally right, it is the Common Blue! I should have taken my time at identifying it!

Knew this was yours from the thumbnail Tim, maybe not your best but certainly up there with them I think. Well done (again!)

Tim - let you off! It's the plant detail that makes this special. A Brown Argus is very difficult to identify. I was in Italy last month and was lucky enough to see Common Blues and Brown Argus side by side.

Another good butterfly shot from you Tim, although the halo-ing around the wing is a little distracting and burned out.....congrats on the EC, keep up the good work.....Ade
