This very obliging painted lady had settled on some undergrowth, with s most unphotogenic background, so I picked a flower nd held it under her nose, fully expecting her to fly off. But no, she climbed onto the flower, and allowed me to walk around with her until I found the right situstion for some piccies. These images were taken only last week, I was amazed to see that there are still butterflies in the meadow, despite the severe drop in temperature.

You certainly have your local wildlife well trained! Wonderful detail -those eyes look right at you in V1 and V2. Beautifully presented as always too. Think it's probably V2 getting my vote today.
