A fine shot indeed, well detailed and merits Ade's award (which we all know is VERY special)
strange they sit on these flowers, here they never go for those.. they prefer clover and scabious.

A belter, Adrian, and what a very complementary flower it has chosen to perch on. Glad to hear that you had a decent evening, about time, too Wink Carol

Adrian, this is more than worthy of my award but since it was posted yesterday I cant award you today, I feel pretty mift and feel an old persons grumble coming on - I couldnt award you yesterday as I had given my award already, as its raining I think I might contact the mods as old people doWink

Wonderful details and textures. Sadly there have been no sightings of any sort of butterflies around here of late, thanks to "summer" weather!

Great shot.


Don't think I saw more than 12 butterflies during the whole of last year, and the way the weather is going, could be a similar story this year as well.
