A pair of Marsh Fritillary butterflies appear to kiss... never seen this before! ... Male on the left.

They stayed like this for ages before and after the act!

Settled on flowers of Wild Thyme... guess they really had a 'wild time'! Tongue

A sensational double capture Tim, such fabulous colours and detail, you've captured this intimate moment perfectly. Seeing as you are in Provence I guess they must be French kissing!
