Southern White Admiral

By mattberry    
I encounter these stunners in the Peloponnese region of Greece. I haven't yet captured a shot of one that I'm happy with, including this. On this particular day about 12 of them were nectaring on the same small bush, outside a beautiful mountain-side monastery.

Next year I will be trying again and hoping to improve on this effort!

Thanks for looking!

It is a good 'un Matt, but no doubt you will nail the shot you want.

A really beautiful butterfly

It might not be right up to your very high standard Matt, but I'd have just been glad to bag one so to speak......Thanks for sharing.
