Meadow Brown

This meadow brown butterfly couldn't get enough of the ox eye daisies last weekend!

Even when he decided he'd had enough, he fluttered around for a couple of minutes, but immediately returned to the same clump of daisies!

I wish all insects would make it that easy to photograph them! :)

Wow, Ian, this is a great picture! Stunning butterfly AND stunning flower, with perfect bokeh too. Fantastic. Grats on getting the butterfly, they can be so skittish. Of course, when you don't have a camera with you, they do the can-can for you and pose ever-so beautifully! :D Nice job here!
