F5 Emeralds

The images in this post are all at F5.  Not something I went out particularly to do, but as it happens the keepers from the day were all at that aperture.  These were taken on a brief walk at Ramsdown Nature reserve in the afternoon before Englands final world cup match.

The first “Emerald” – is a slight play on the title, but at I think the butterfly, does have an emerald green colour.
