Another lovely shot, Fg......although I can well understand why you opt for panoramic, to be honest I feel it takes something away from them...ie viewing through a letterbox?

Re my photographing the Highlands......what I do have in my favour is the fact that I have unlimited free rail travel and time isn't a restricting factor.....I feel a Michael Portillo coming on.

Back to butterflies,  there's a tropical butterfly farm (open all year round) nr Stratford-on-Avon that allows photography (I've checked) this is quite doable from where I live (55miles) so may give it a try.

"Would it work if I email it to you or is there any other way?".....don't think so, Fg (as you say) a visit would be the answer, although I fear my mobility may be problematic.

You said recently that some of these places are a 2hr drive from you. It got me thinking, that's about the time it would take me to drive from here (in the Midlands) to Cornwall.....perhaps I'm just a wimp!

Yes, gorgeous shot, Lyn...and I was just itching to zoom in on it.

It seems apt to add a good tip for butterfly snapping.

Try to take them early in the morning before the sun raises their body temperature....this way they are less likely fly off just as you have them composed in your camera.

I think it's lovely to know that the Red Admiral's original name had no naval connotations - it was originally known as an Admirable - isn't that great!

You mean it wasn't named after Yuri Aleksandrovich?

PS.....for what it's worth, I have Fairygirl's red squirrel as my PC's background picture.
