Description:

Came to light left on overnight. The original photo is rather poor; the second has been digitally "enhanced". Can anyone help with an ID, please?
Edit: Changed to match CharlieB's ID. Many thanks.

I see exactly where you are coming from. I think the apparent pale legs in photo 2 are an artefact of the "enhancement" - losing some definition and the background taking over. I'm confident that the original had dark legs.
