The female of the species - Marbled White Melanargia galathea that is.
Taken yesterday evening.
Off for another session, with these stunning butterflies, in about half an hourWink

Totally blown away by the response to yesterday's uploadSmile

Many thanks to Pete for the H.C and to Keith (Kban), Brian (bricurtis), Lou (looloobey), Steve (Steve_S) and Lillian, for their very generous U.A's

Definitely makes it all worth whileTongue

A marvellous detailed close up of this female marbled white, you've captured its wing patterns and markings quite beautifully

She's just as beautiful as her male counterpart, and you have certainly done her justice. They don't come much better than this.
