Silver Washed Fritillary

By alansnap  
We had just had a superb provencal Sunday lunch in Monieux (3 hours in the fresh air under the plane tree in the village square) and were walking back to the car when we chanced on a buddliea covered with butterflies. This silver washed fritillary stayed still long enough to capture it. I only had my standard lens with me so this is a pretty good advert for the kit lens with my 5D Mk II!
