A fabulous close up of this beautiful male brimstone, such wonderful detail and colour. I saw four species at my allotment yesterday, all the overwintering ones except for the comma

Super image Nigel.
Nice lighting has helped bring out the sharp detail and colours in the shot.
Good composition also.

Nearly as good as Ben's photo's - lol!
