Flutterby - dedicated to Artois

By Take-a-View
A tad different for me this one. Out wandering around the "estate" this morning, with a view to taking some flower shots but this little chap fluttered by. No idea what it is apart from being a butterfly lol. Am sure any budding lepidopterist on here can tell me its name.

Thanks to Siverzone for comment and V2 has had saturation dropped

An intriguingly formal composition, I like the way the butterfly sits so neatly in the corner. Has the look of a book illustration.

It's a painted lady and it seems a tad oversaturated but a good image. Sylvia

I like the composition of this shot. Both are good shots based on preference. I would probably prefer a saturation somewhere between v1 and v2. The angled composition is what sets this one apart.

V1 for me, stunning.

Lovely. I must admit I like the slightly oversaturated one, although it is not so natural
