Warming the wings

By theeyesoftheblind
Here's a pic of a butterfly
I've put it on quick cos time flies by
When the sun is out and sky is blue
We're off to the allottment
Cos there's lots to do.

I think I'll stick to photography!!!

Just liked the radiating warmth of this one. Caught it as it was basking on a leaf on the grapevine.

Hope you like the image and thanks for looking. As usual large may be beneficial. Clive
