Heath Fritillery

By livinglevels  
Thanks for all the votes and comments from last weekend.

This male Heath Fritillary (Mellicta athalia) was drinking salts from the damp ground in the French Alps at La Breole.

This image has been rotated 90 clockwise to show the butterfly better in what appears a more natural position, however version two shows the correct orientation, as the insect was drinking face down from the grass stem

Love this natural shot. They don't always land in the most ideal spot but you have made an excellent image none the less.
