Quite a slender looking creature, the height of the wings suggest a very wide span. Great details on this Michael, the background is very complementary. Very Happy

Superb. The background colours are perfectly complimentary.

It seems to be one of those species in which the front pair of legs is rudimentary. I have never seem an explanation of why that is, possibly because I never looked.

Have your elbows recovered?

I kept finding that the right knee of my jeans would wear through when they were otherwise in fairly good condition. Having purchased a pair of gardener's kneepads, and carrying one with my camera kit, my jeans last longer. As a bonus, my right l knee does not suffer from damp or sharp stones! Very Happy

Excellent shot, superb composition, colour etc. Personally I'd prefer if if the beast were sitting on a flower but you have to work with what you've got and you did a great job, one of the nicest butterfly shots I've seen!

Incidentally I don't care about kneeling on rocks, or in mud, it's kneeling on tiny stinging nettles I really hate!! Wink
