At last I've had butterflies visiting my garden today and I managed to get a few shots. This Tortoiseshell didn't even budge when I got quite closeSmile
Camera handheld, cropped and framed using picnik. Hope you like itGrin

Thank you all for your c&c's on my previous upload ' Too early' and especially for your time. Very much appreciatedSmile

Hope you all had an enjoyable weekend..........Take care.........Pauline
