Managed to get a shot of one of these in the Summer.
Quite elusive when they are actually in the woods.
Nice pictures, Carol.

I am completely bemused as to how you get this level of detail with a compact camera, Carol (no, I am not being snobbish!).
I look at images of butterflies, taken with high-end cameras and macro lenses, which cannot hold a torch to the detail shown here.
Must have very steady hands!

Fantastic pin sharp details and glorious colours in these outstanding close ups Carol, I can't believe you've kept these hidden away on your hard drive for so long, these are undoubtedly amongst your very best butterfly images. The European speckled wood is a much brighter and more colourful butterfly than the UK version which appears quite drab in comparision. It's colour is more like that of a wall brown but its markings can not be mistaken for anything other than a speckled wood
