Many thanks for looking at previous photo (comments and votes really appreciated!)
This is the second picture of (probably) the same butterfly that arrived with hundreds that day in the garden. For some reason I'm now interested in the underwing patterns (some of the previous photos really concentrate on them). It's curiosity, really, the sort of thing I didn't have time for as a busy IT person, parent etc. so it's like growing up again and having a chance to look around. The camera really helps (used in moderation, of course).

many thanks. I haven't seen any for a while either, but I'm hoping that if the weather clears some of these missing butterflies may make a late come-back.
regards
Pete

PS many years ago I lived in Norfolk - Necton and then Gressenhall. It's a lovely county.

A cracking close up of this beautiful butterfly, you've captured its colours and markings so superbly. I haven't seen one yet this year and only a few in the last couple of years

Thank-you for comments.

as I mentioned on the previous shot of this fellow, they turned up in their hundreds on a warm daught of wind that one year. They aren't very common here, but that year they were all over the garden for a few days. Must have been a freak wind that blew them off course - I've never seen anything like it before or since.
