A beautiful shot. I obviously live in the wrong area as saw very few butterflies this year Sad

They had a very poor year in 2012 Ann, apart from the day at Weston when this one was taken I hardly saw any of these this summer. There were a few around at Prestbury Hill in June and a few again at the end of August but not in the numbers of previous years when they were abundant

What a beautiful butterfly. Well captured. Elaine
