Afloat in a Pea Green sea

Afloat in a Pea Green Sea

Not an Owl, nor a Pussy-Cat
And definitely not the Monarch I was chasing...

...had to go in because it was raining

Beautiful butterfly Jenn - lovely defocussed b/g which is what I want but can't achieve.
P.S. I was watching news of the royal birth today and my husband said "I bet taggart from Australia
has it all over Ephotozine by now"! He remebered your avatar because we have a gritty
detective programme in Scotland with your name and of course he didn't have a clue where you came from!

Good title, Jenn: the butterfly seems to be in 3D and I feel it could fly from the screen into the room at any moment.
