  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    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 :(

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