agree about the ID. It is a beautiful, pin sharp capture. Now If you get a female, the offspring will eat your stingy nettles this summer Smile

A fine capture, Geoff. Despite Annette's comment above, I have yet to see a caterpillar on stinging nettles Grin Carol

A stunner with excellent details. A rather nice perch in the form of the Ice Plant too.

Beautifully detailed and composed macro capture, Geoff. Terrific detail, textures and tones on the Tortie. Isolated to perfection by those acidic green bg colours.

Very well captured, wonderful detail, a favourite of mine, last year was very poor for sightings in my area after
some improvement in the previous two years, let us hope this is a good year for them, it would be so sad to see
any further decline.
