I know they're about as common a butterfly as you'll ever likely to see, but lets be honest here, it's not very often you get the chance to fire off a few frames like this as the species are just so darn flighty and rarely sit still long enough to get a goodish shot like this, especially at the time of day this was captured. So whilst they may be very common and seen on almost any day of the summer, I'm rather pleased with this one, especially as it's straight out the camera with the exception of a border being added and a little sharpen.
Many thanks once again for all the comments and vote on yesterdays image, it proved to be a lot more popular than I though it would be. Thanks for stopping by, regards as always to all.......Ade
