    I originally intended to go looking for Kingfishers this morning but spotted a couple of Orange Tips so decided to take a couple pics! I'm now keen to get back and try and find some sleeping ones at first light, hopefully have the chance this bank holiday.

    oooh wow looks at that creamyyyyy BG :) Lovely shot and welcome back Neil :)
    Atm I cant get any in the daytime that have stopped, too warm and in the afternoon is not good.
    Reason I wont got out early doors is that i`m more afraid of the boar than the butterflies :(

    Thank you :)

    Cheers mate, been trying different techniques shooting through foliage etc and getting more like the results i want. Most of that creamy BG is mostly FG shooting really low through foliage. Glad to be back, def got the macro bug again :)

    That is a delightful picture, the pastel colours make a great frame for the butterfly.
