A stunning close up of this beautiful butterfly, you did well to catch her away from the ground and with a good natural background. This species is about in great numbers at Prestbury Hill at present and there are more than i've ever seen there before. In fact in some areas of the reserve they even outnumber the marbled whites

She has some deep rich colours almost 3D against the BG.
