Lovely shot of this butterfly and it's floral perch, Jenn, both standing out so crisply against that smooth green b/g

A rather fantastic macro photograph Jenn, full of gorgeous natural colour, superb detail, which enhances the beauty of this rather handsome looking Painted Lady so very well indeed.

"Brushfooted" is a new term for me as well. Lovely detailed capture, Jenn, looks good on the floral display and against that bg.

Beautifully clear - and a very nice simplicity to it, allowing the attention to be fully on the butterfly.

A stunning specimen Jenn, this beautiful butterflys colours and wing patterns have been recorded in such intricate detail. I've only seen one of these this year, at Crickley Hill about three weeks ago.
