Small tortoiseshell

By Julian
Small tortoiseshell on nettle.
You probably know that these charming insects lay their eggs on Stinging Nettle which is exactly what this one is resting on. I quite liked the viewpoint.
Thanks for looking

A very original shot! I like the way the wing edge plays with the leaf edge and the shallow depth.

Great colours!

Well done!
