Those backgrounds are getting better by the day, never mind the lovely butterfly
and simple perch.

The almost uniform b/g does show off the subject to well, Ed: another good capture from Prestbury Hill, now a favourite haunting ground for you.

A beautifully capture image as always Ed. However I do feel that the little tuft of fluff protruding from the wings somewhat distracts ones eye. Perhaps a little touch up during post production maybe in order? "Just a thought Ed"

Great shot, Ed.

A delicate little butterfly on a delicate perch, well isolated from the background. The fluff is a shame but that is the thing about wildlife photography, you take what is put in front of you.

Looks like a tomcat to me Smile He'll be sharpening his claws if yours are as good as that !!
btw the knapweed fritillary is very similar to the march fritillary,, the difference are three dots on the outside the shape of the black lines has some small differences. As one might guess they love knapweed. I often have to compare some shots to tell for sure who is who. In August round here it is almost 100% a knapweed one Smile
