So interesting seeing V2 though given your little butterfly is perched on a common Daisy, don't think I was in any doubt as to how tiny it is. V1 is superb.

Excellent macro photography Adrian, the weather down here rules out any such images, even when the
light has been good the bloody wind makes it impossible.
