These beautiful butterflies are not to be seen much here, I think they have all left us and gone to the UK! I couldn't believe my luck when I saw this one with its wings open, and managed to get a couple of pics before it took off.
Superb detail and colours, V2 for me.
v1 for me Carol as it is such an unusual angle.
Lovely Carol, i'm going to try putting some fruit out, covered in super glue, then i can get them. LOL.
Nice pics, yup we get a few of these over here Carol.
v2 is my fv.lesley
Excellent Carol. As well as being great close-ups of the butterfly these images show how well the camouflage works against a background of flowers and dappled light, especially V2.
Well caught - lovely butterfly on a great BG..........Bill
Delightful captures with superb pin-sharp detail.
beautiful as always Carol
Stunning Carol, and thanks for the correction on yesterdays flower. Trish
Bot of these have a sort of formality, they could make beautiful textile or wallpaper designs. Very effective.
I love it and i hope you dont mind me using it as my start up page on my computer. kaz
Very well detailed shots.
Two superb images.
Like the head on shot, thanks for the message will catch you later, great colours and such a lovely Butterfly....
Nice capture. Sylvia
Two superb shots
Superb captures of this very common butterfly, at least that is what Springwatch uk said last night, well done..
Two wonderful shots Carol - like the angle in V1, excellent image,
Stunning shots V1 my fav
Both shots work beuatifully but I especailly like V1 with its less usual angle.
Your presentation of this beautiful butterfly is fantastic
2 great captures Carol, glad they've turned up for you!
Two fine versions !
I prefer v2, I like the diagonal composition.
really great photo. similar to the one i took a little while back (but better lol) Well done.
Stunning pair of shots beautifully captured. Excellent sharp detail and lovely colours. Superb macros.

Superb and very very sharp detailed images with wonderful colours. Gary
Yes, apparently we have thousands of them at the moment. I caught some last weekend, but not as good as yours.
Just beautiful. Sue118/hawthorn
A very different, and very pleasing composition for this. I love the field of flowers it is on, and your perspective.
Sensational captures Carol. Fabulous!
Have a great weekend.
Nice set of shots Carol,
Superb detail on this beautiful butterfly, two lovely shots Carol.
You are at the Eastern edge of their range, but their numbers are huge this year so I guess this one was exploring. Aother wonderful picture with the perfect setting for this beauty.
Cracking detail Carol
A real beauty Carol!
Awesome butterfly capture Carol. Wonderful detail and so nicely composed...Sandy
WOW beautuful presentations......why should I sound surprised...1st class as usual
Saw your spider on Spring watch last night and it had a bee as well..it better not get this Butterfly as well...Lol
Both great shot v2 is just get my vote..
Stunning colours and awesome detail Carol.Have an Assos on me !!!!
Really like the composition of V1 really unusual.
Superb set Carol!! Excellent detail and composition. We had a mass of over 400 painted ladies flying around here at Slimbridge WWT. BTW V1 for me!!
Good work with these close-ups, Carol.
Brilliant detail and well presented too Carol.
Love the colours Carol
Fabulous clarity and color in these images Carolm, such great work.
To brilliant shots - Crisp and clear - good colour - well presented - Elizabeth
pin sharp, lovely shot.
They must have come over for the exchange rate!
Brilliant this Carol.
two lovely shots Carol, I've only seen one in my garden so far,
Very well composed and presented
Brilliant work. I really like v1
Well caught, and sharp.
Superb capture and comp Carol - wonderful detail, light and colours.
Two fabulous images Carol - cracking detail. We have one popping in and out of our garden - would love to capture it.
Lovely detail, well presented.
Love the letterbox presentation inside the black frame of V1 and love the diagonal image in V1 which is my favourite
Great colours and compositions!
Really beautiful. Thank you for the cooment on my bumble bee today, nowhere up to your standards but I'm trying!
Unusual angle in V1 that works very well and shows the front & top of the butterfly beautifully - Ina
Great shots Carol.
I dont know if you are able to watch a programme we get in the UK Carol called Spring Watch but they were talking about the painted lady last night and said they go to Europe first and then they come here to UK so you could be correct in saying they may have left you for us but a good shot you show today, glad you got him/her before they ALL left
congrats on your luck..paid off for excellent captures
superb captures, love the angles
Truly beautiful images.
congtats on award Carol
Said on the News there was a deluge of them had hit Britain but I've only seen 2 of them and they were too high and flittery for me .
Love these 2 but prefer version 2 in it's open magnificence xxx
Beautiful images Carol, lovely detail captured
Two terrific shots of this beautiful painted lady butterfly, the colours and detail are simply sensational
superb images carol.ray
Superb shots Carol, V2 is excellent well captured,
Stunning close up capture, love the detail and the colours.
Hard to choose between these two Carol, both are really good shots. Been told there are plenty of these around this year but I couldn't find a single one on the nature reserve I went to last week.
Think #2 just has the edge for me.
Great shot,lovely colour,Dane.
Not just a superb shot but very cool framing, Carol. I'm with Fran...really hard to choose. For a big print on the wall, it'd be V2, I think.
