Bicton Butterfly

By KarenFB
Yesterday we went to Bicton - the sun shone! Grin (I am so glad we ignored the weather forecast).

There in the gardens was this wonderful Red Admiral - it was pristine and so beautiful (version 2 is a close up, to show the glorious colours and markings in its lower wing.

Beautifully captured, the contrasting colours of the butterfly and the flower work really well.

Lovely capture, Karen, but I'm not sure what's happened to v2, it is excactly the same dimensions as v1 but with a black mask around the background if that makes sense. ie. it's not a closer view.

I think it's because I've uploaded it as 600 pxl rather then 1000! Smile

Thank you!

I must admit, I am rather chuffed with this one - when I saw the butterfly I was amazed at the details (I was very lucky that the butterfly was in a sheltered part of the garden!). Smile
Lovely shot Karen. Super detail and colours.
