it would have been good to see one this year, in these parts, never mind photograph one.
Especially with open wings

Thank you all for votes and comments, these lovely butterflies had a great year in my area, the best I have seen in the last 5 or so years, this was taken early evening, my favourite time for butterfly photography, as they have settled down getting the last rays of the sun and are much more approachable, I was lucky to find this one with the wings pretty much on a level plane.

Exquisite macro capture David. The detail, patterning, tones and textures of the wings are remarkable. This beauty is so well isolated from its background - it has 3D effects for me - stunning.
