I took this at the LWT on quite a cloudy and windy day. As a result, many of the butterflies were down in the grass so they wouldn't get blown about. I took a while to get closer to this so it would not be scared away. I framed it at the top of the image so the balde of grass that it is sitting on becomes part of the image. I used a shallow depth of field (f3.5) to throw the background of grass out of focus.

Hope you like it!
