Not the best of backgrounds, I know, but I did like the way it complemented the butterfly, so thought it worthy of an airing on ePZ.

LOL...before reading your descrip, I was thinking how cool it is that the background matches the butterfly and yet the butterfly stands out so well Grin

Incredibly sharp shots you've got, Carol. Awesome Grin

What do you mean 'Not the best of backgrounds'? I think it is perfect. Anyway, since when did butterflies study the so-called 'rules' of photography and follow them before you click?

Two fabulous shots.

Beautiful Carol - the exposure and colour of the butterfly is spot on and the background shows its environment well.

Two terrific close ups Carol, the background really complements this often overlooked little butterfly. The brown argus has done really well in Gloucestershire this year and I have a few more pics of this species to share with you all
