I'll wait for Gruditch to sort out the photo's and when that done it should be pretty striaght forward. Hi Shirley, Don't worry about Gruditch and Sussex Kipper - they'll simply get you the photos as chosen by them and whoever they rope in to help them. Pete I see you made your mind up, Shirley. Go...

Re: Common Blue Question.

What a splendid, conciliatory post, Roger! I'm afraid I come into the "glass of wine too many" category once in a while, and I apologise if I have caused offence to any on this forum. Perhaps you should be the forum counsellor, Roger? I mean, it's not as if your photography is any good. Da...

Re: What makes a winning photograph?

It’s good – try it. I accept that a non-UK butterfly will never win because ...

Re: Daily Quiz

Lycaena dispar, being the scientific name for the extinct Large copper and an anagram of "any arid places".

I guess this was a bit obscure.

Re: Daily Quiz

Re: Butterflies of Var, Southern France

I'm enjoying this thread tremendously! Thanks for the wonderful photos, Roger; also Guy, for that exposition and close-up of the silver line. The Red-underwing skipper has gone to the top of my 'must see one day' list. It may be France's smallest, but that's one laid-back dude of a butterfly! Any id...
