|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is one of the best known butterflies of Europe. It is widespread and common. It can be found in almost every habitat and any altitude. It is particularly common in towns and villages where its opportunistic foodplant grows in plenty on disturbed ground. Additionally it is one of the first butterflies out of hibernation in spring and flies well into the autumn before hibernating.|

beautiful butterfly in harmony with the flower and background. a unique species. nicely framed. good work. tfs.
The gallery is filled with lots of beautifully coloured images today and it is such a pleasure to look at each one of them, just like this one of your Aglais urticae (Small Tortoiseshell) of yours. The colours are absolute a delight, the details so sharp and everything is just so delightful in this image. I really fancy the golden, furry body that is so well seen in the lovely sunlight. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
