A beautiful capture of this perfect brown argus, Albert, a wonderful white fringe he has Smile. Was still seeing quite a number of these in the meadow last week, but the gales we are experiencing now will, I think, have put paid to the butterflies for this year Sad Carol

Colours and details are lovely. We had so few of any kind of butterfly this year, a sad miss.

Fine shot with excellent detail, the butterfly stopped on such a pretty 'perch'.
Nice one, Albert.
