What a stunning shot, I love the dof, and the focus is on it's little face - perfect. We've got several different butterflies around here, but they seem very flighty and I can't get near them!!

They are out very early this year! Great shot, I like the slightly unusual angle.

This really is superb work Ian . They are hardly bigger than your thumbnail and to get such a close , detailed macro is amazing . Last time I saw this variety was in the Spanish Pyranees 19 year's ago . !! Well done xxx
