A female chalkhill blue butterfly in the masts field at Prestbury Hill nature reserve near Cheltenham, taken on a visit there at the end of July.
Great pose and detail captured Ed, super image,
Those backgrounds are getting better by the day, never mind the lovely butterfly
and simple perch.
The almost uniform b/g does show off the subject to well, Ed: another good capture from Prestbury Hill, now a favourite haunting ground for you.
Superb detail on this acrobat and the background is excellent. I look forward to the publication of your butterfly book!
Really well taken Ed ! A superb image
Superb macro, love it !

Another superb capture and presentation, Ed. Carol
This rates as one of your VERY best Chalkhill Blues Ed', wonderful.
This is GOOD Ed! I agree with John!
Great macro image
A beautifully capture image as always Ed. However I do feel that the little tuft of fluff protruding from the wings somewhat distracts ones eye. Perhaps a little touch up during post production maybe in order? "Just a thought Ed"
Great shot, Ed.
A delicate little butterfly on a delicate perch, well isolated from the background. The fluff is a shame but that is the thing about wildlife photography, you take what is put in front of you.
Another excellent image, Ed!
Super shot Ed.
detail colour and composition - first class.
One of your best , great work,
Cracking image Ed.
A lovely image in a great setting, nice work
Love the upside down look! Excellent image, well done!
Many thanks for all your comments and clicks, they are much appreciated, Ed
I can just see you darting from one to t'other - you did well for butterflies this year Ed
Looks like a tomcat to me He'll be sharpening his claws if yours are as good as that !!
btw the knapweed fritillary is very similar to the march fritillary,, the difference are three dots on the outside the shape of the black lines has some small differences. As one might guess they love knapweed. I often have to compare some shots to tell for sure who is who. In August round here it is almost 100% a knapweed one
Others have remarked on your excellent background, this looks really good Ed, and a very nice pose by the blue too.
Super image Ed.
Definitely one of your best Ed - super image.
