I'm impressed - you've taken a photo with one hand while balancing a butterfly on the other! I love the echo of the colours between flower and butterfly too.

I don't think it's a prize winning shot tho ! I never win anything. But I love it, I was so pleased with it.

They need to be maximum 700 pixels wide to appear in the post and yours are much bigger. Nice though! :thumbright:

But then, most of us wouldn't bother to put our photos up if winning was the only goal!

Quite right, it's the taking part and sharing that is the important thing. I love seeing the photos from other Ishers.

Anyway - a warning that my next photo is a little gruesome but what the heck, I'll post it anyway. I doubt it's a prizewinner either but it sure does show the darker side of nature.
