An absolutely superb capture....It demonstrates so well how important the humble thistle is to our UK butterfly species.

Marvellous shot, two for the price of one! And both captured in such fine detail and bright but natural colours.

This is one of those shots that captures, above all, the magic of being face to face with these beautiful creatures... never a moment that doesn't catch your breath!

Well done Karen!
