She's a lovely powder blue, Ed, well captured. Carol
I have never seen one of these gorgeous fellas however you have managed to take an extremely good close-up photograph which clearly highlights the beauty of this Chalkhill Blue, great natural colours, and beautiful detail.
Beautifully detailed shot, Ed.
Excellent capture Ed.
A lovely butterfly and thank you for naming the thistle.
Something new I've learned.
Beautifully captured Ed, they seem to have had a really good year.
Stunning clarity on this beauty Ed, have uploaded a mod with brightness and contrast adjusted and dark vignette added to corners, hope you approve.
A really fine capture, they really are lovely butterflies.
He's a beauty and captured so very well.
Another cracker Ed.
That thistle has seen better days, Ed, unlike the pristine butterfly using it as a resting place... or as a restaurant?
Fantastic range of textures and tones, Ed. Beautifully detailed close up image.
You are very lucky hardly see any, like it, regards Leon.
The thistle has a dried out look to it anway Malc, this type is found on chalk grassland. Many thanks for the user award Sylvia, it was a most unexpected surprise and is greatly appreciated coming from such a talented wildlife photographer as yourself.
Very good shot, Ed.
This is another very well detailed and sharp image Ed, I sometimes think some of your best images come from the little Ixus.
Anoher excellent image Ed.

Super capture, Ed.
And another stunning image.
Splendid capture Ed - a very attractive thistle that the BF is perched on too.
