I have not yet seen one this year. How lucky to find one asleep - they are the very devil to photograph when awake!

Thanks Bruce! Absolutely! Trouble is they close their wings when sleeping like this! Nice to see the upper wings as well, but they're so quick!

Wish I could find a comatose one.....they're far too lively for me! Fabulous capture!
