Nice shot for an always beautiful scene. It looks very natural, and the specimens look imaculate. I like the darker BG which describes the contour perfectly. Maybe a bit tight at the bottom for my personal taste, but a good work. Thanks Nigel.
PD: I did not want to spoil your dinner, sorry for that! :D

The sharpness of detail stands out and renders perfectly the texture of the butterflies and the texture of the leaf. The colours seem very natural and blend well. The contrast between the two butterflies gives strength to the simple composition, which along with the blurred background, shows off the subject. Perhaps a bit tight at the bottom but that's no big deal.

Wish I had taken this shot - superb!!!
browsing through the TN website I just got your "engaged ringlets" from 2005-10-10 onto my screen. What I well taken picture of that unspectacular species showing fine details and subtle colours, provided with excellent notes and a title that doesnot take documentary nature photography too serious. I always thought being engaged in Britain doesnot include to get as close together as your ringlets do ;).
Next: I just realised that you have been taking excellent pictures with a quite simple inexpensive compact pocket camera. To me, that doubles the impressive number of smileys you have got. And it also serves to me as a proof of my conviction that good pictures come from a photographer's mind and his skills, and not so much from his equipment. Thank you for that picture. Regards,
