Thanks, chicky.....that's very helpful.

Initially I thought is was (as I said) a Tortoiseshell and from your pic it does seem that they & Painted Lady are very similar.

I'm by no means an expert, but I did think Red Admirals were slightly darker in colour....Anyway, Painted Lady is fine by me ....Madge will be pleased, as I took it in the grounds of Sandringham.

Would have asked you if I'd known David  They were English sausages.

I trust the onions were French?

Derby will lose I'm afraid David.  Man United dare not lose so will play like a team from the lower divisions, viz., with guts and energy.  Fingers crossed for Derby 

Well, 1-1 at half-time and I wouldn't be surprised to see Derby snatch it.......not performing well of late, but do have the players to pull it off.

FA Cup, Derby v Man U, 7.30pm BBC1......good luck Derby!

Excellent shots.....uploading batches of 9 & 4 can sometimes take a little while.

What makes and models are the two cameras?

"Re that pic you were trying to zoom in on - would it help if I give you the original pic? That was a cropped one." Thank you Fg, but it wouldn't help.

Pleased to hear your getting some enjoyment from editing your pics (as you know) a little tweak here & there does make a big difference and perhaps justifies my starting this thread.

I'm not too keen on drastic alteration normally associated with 'Photoshop', it (for me) makes them total fakes......in fact, it's an issue that prompted me to quit my camera club.

For what it's worth, although a few tweaks can be made using Photobucket, I prefer to use MS's Windows.

I wish I had red squirrels. I just have three fat greys, stuffing themselves on the blackbirds food.


Me too!

Fairygirl is so lucky to have such beautiful countryside nearby.

As you will know, BBC's Winterwatch is broadcast live from the Cairngorms this year. Last night I was fascinated by the duel being played-out between a fox & a golden eagle, fighting over a deer carcass.
