A Painted Lady butterfly. These guys migrate northwards from Spain and arrived last week here. They move forward in a swarm up the UK. Last year I did not see any here and the summer was terrible. Last week there were droves here and I hope this is a harbinger of a good summer!
What a super macro Viv your technique has really grown over the year - such detail and colour and look at all the textures in this - hint hintThe hidden harmony is better than the obvious. Alexander Pope (1688-1744)
Wonderful capture, Viv. Lucky you to see this beauty. I will keep fingers crossed for a beautiful summer, so you can take some of your superb macro shots of the interesting creautures you see. Superb dof. CatIt's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see ~ Henry David Thoreau
