Duke Of Burgundy butterfly

By Alfies_Girl  
This is a fairly rare butterfly and difficult to spot due to its small size. Taken in its natural environment with no disturbance to it. Unfortunately there is a distracting piece of grass over its wing and another piece of grass sticking out the other side but I am thrilled to have seen this Duke Of Burgundy. I have slightly cropped it so that it fills the frame a bit better.

Isn't it wonderful to see a less common bug/butterfly - okay, as you say there are a few distracting 'bits', but still a good photo! (Lovely low point of view!)

Thank you Karen for your vote and comment...... I was just pleased to see one and its a bonus that I came away with a photo of it.
