Common Blue

By gary_d
I had a walk with Paul ( romansnumber7 ) last night and he gave me more tips and advice on photographing butterflies.

I went out this evening to try and put them in to practice and I am quite pleased with this.

Thanks again Paul and to all who look at this.

Regards. - gary
