Captures the iriddescent nature of the hairs/scales Malcolm. Shallow dof just noticable with that lower wing.

A good shot, Malcolm, but I feel it's a little oversharpened.

Great to capture a butterfly at all this year.
Personally I love butterfly images best when
they harmonise with the flower.
Good defocussed b/g.

A rather fantastic macro photograph Malcolm, full of gorgeous natural colour, superb detail, which enhances the beauty of this rather handsome looking 'Tortoise Shell Butterfly' so very well indeed.

Still to spot my first butterfly this summer despite searching high and low: nice shot, Malcolm.

Colourful detail, Malcolm, and a great shape.

I think I've seen one butterfly this year not counting this one Malcolm. A great beauty.
