[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this is a very common butterfly,beautiful but common...which cant be a bad thing
as its so common i wont bore you with facts about it but i will say how i got it
i was at brandon marsh,a place i visit often.well i decided it was time for coffee so i sat on the damp grass and poured on out of my flask...well you know how it is,you just sit there taking your surroundings in and something turns up...well this butterfly just landed on the hazel 'flower' next to me and started feeding,a very big stroke of luck

Hello Ian,
A belated welcome to TN!
Though the Peacock butterfly is a common and popular species on TN, you took a fine shot of a fresh spring specimen. The sharpness, colours and lighting are excellent against the OOF natural BG of pussy willows.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hello Ian,
A beautiful capture of the Peacock very sharply in focus against a beautiful soft background. Lovely natural colours too and well composed.
TFS and welcome to TN! Ulla
