'backlit Brimstone'

By PaulLiley  
Snapped on our local crag. Thought I would have a go at a backlit into the sun shot of a Brimstone. I had a very special 2 hours sat amongst butterflies and bees and other insects late afternoon. In beautiful sun surrounded by the natural world. It was amazing.

A splendid shot Paul.
But I disagree with Kates comment.
I have never come across a pub that gives its Guinness away for free !!
