Magnificent shot Dave, of a butterfly I have never seen. I got told off last year for posting butterfly shots with the insect facing away from the camera, but this one works for me.

Thanks David. Yes, you should have explained that wild animals don't always do as they are told . Butterflies rarely settle tilting downwards so you won't see many from the front showing the wing design!
