Great to see some macros from you Carl! This one is much better than the first one, I love the 'rim light' on the butterfly's wings.

Nice - and very early for a Silver Studded. May I ask where it was?

Thank you, it was taken at Braunton Burrows Reserve Devon. It was quite an amazing find really. There were literally hundreds of them and all very docile. Taken during the evening - so perhaps that helped. But Ive never seen anything like it. A friend of mine managed to capture 3 of them on one flower.

Thank you David, I love the angle view point of this one. Had a lot of shots but not always easy to get a good view point. Also starting to think I perhaps need to invest in some flashes as finding it very hard to increase the aperture, even in full daylight?
