A mating pair of Gatekeeper butterflies take at Berryhead,Brixham in Devon. Unfortunately the lower butterflys head is in shadow,I tried to remove a leaf causing the shadow but the pair flew out of reach.The whole reserve was covered in wildflowers and Insects including Queen of Spain Fritillaries which would not stay put long enough for a shot.

You shouldn't have touched the leaf - best not to interfere at a moment like this... Lovely shot, and never mind the shadow, it shows one of them was keeping a cool head.
