[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Perhaps not the most visually stunning British butterfly, but certaily one of the rarest. Some of you will understand my excitement when I found out that one of the only 2 colonies in Essex was less than 5 miles from my home, and it only took me 30 years to find it!

Excellent photo of this Nymphalidae Roy!
Perfect on details and DOF!
Very good POV with wings wide open!
Very good colours!
5* photo!
Keep on going and TFS!

Hi Roy,
I photographed some of these myself last year. so I can understand your excitement.
This looks a little noisy is it a large crop?
Good to see the wings open.


Hi Roy,
it's a nice picture of the Heath Fritillary, it's always exciting when you get a rare species. I know this is a rare butterfly in UK but is still quite common up here.
As Terry mention is a bit noisy, but thats a minor nit.
Well composed, good POV and nice colours.
Well done.

A fine shot, Roy. Perfectly placed and does not miss out anything in details.
