I'd have a go too, the only problem being that I have hardly seen a single butterfly during the last 3 or 4 summers up here, whether wet or dry and warm like the current one.
There are some on site who regularly produce excellent shots of them, but your's seem pretty accomplished to me, Ron.

Excellent Ron, a fine composition,

Wonderful "square" shows the butterfly off perfectly without having it take center stage.

Beautifully composed, makes the butterfly stand out, but puts the thistle nicely off as well.

Excellent close up. I have only seen one of these in my garden, this year, and that was too far away, and it didn't give me time to get my camera. I am only seeing Cabbage Whites.
