I like it this way up!

By moocow
Hi all, facing my fear of all things with wings I managed to get quite close to this butterfly. It was quite amazing to watch them land then immediatley turn upside down. Of course they never land just where you want, I would have loved it if it has chosen the nice bright purple flowers that were in the sunshine, or the buttercups, obviously that didn't happen lol Smile
