Thanks Brian and Sharon

There are thousands up in the nature reserve. It's on typical chiltern chalky grassland, which they like apparently.
I have some of the other species i saw up there which i will post at a later date.

I agree with Brian on the name.

Paul, my photo does not overshadow this wonderful shot in any way.

Nice colour and composition Paul. I think the focus point could possibly do with being on the foreground wings, the softness and the fact that the underside is paler make the image a little confusing.

Thanks

The plant was moving backwards and forwards in the wind. I didn't really have too much control over the focus. I put it on continuous and hoped for the best.
