Habitat & Behaviour: A butterfly of woodland and bushy places where the larval food plant bramble grows. Frequently takes nectar from bramble and other flowers.

Almost nobody is willing to give any comment on the photos which were posted during the last days. Very sad.
But this a nice macro in beautiful colours with a fine blurry background. Good sharpness and taken from the best POV.

Great macro of this beautiful butterfly in a very nice composition, nice POV, excellent sharpness and details.
Beautiful butterfly....I like its color. I think you faced very harsh Sunlight if we concentrate on white petals.
Thanks for showing this butterfly,
