These beautiful butterflies are still fluttering around the meadows, despite the cold weather, and I couldn't resist taking a couple of pics of this fine fella perched on an oxalis pes-caprae.

Again, apologies for the lack of clicks/comments, I lost my connection on Friday, it returned for half an hour on Saturday, and then went again. It has just come back, but I wonder for how long this time?

Grr... very tricky but still I think Cleopatra. I think females don't have the orange checking the web so just going on wing shape.

Great shots though. I prefer the dark background as the other background is a bit distracting... but prefer the angle you have on the butterfly in that green backgrounded shot.

I don't think backgrounded is a real word however! Smile
