Sometimes in the afternoon, one is inclined to pack up and head for home. But at such times, many bees and butterflies might appear if there are flowers.
Here's a butterfly one such afternoon. 

90D, 180Canon,AP, f8, 1/1000 sec, iso800,no flash, uncropped, Photopea, handhold.

Background is a bit messy and colours slightly washed out? The sunlight does tend to have these effects.....

Just sharing. Comments welcomed.

The backlighting is great - no nits from me about the background.

The backlit effect works beautifully, Darren. I'm not bothered by the background.
