During my short trip to Ukraine I've meet a lot of butterflies. One of most popular was Brown Argus. This species was visible almost everywhere. I've taken few shots of them ;-)
I hope you'll like it.

hello Chris,
Pleasant presentation of the Brown Argus, which is not so easy to photograph, because of its small size. Nice framing and good sharpness. Beautiful flower on which it had landed.
Best regards

Hi Chris.
Very attractive shot of the Brown Argus surrounded with so nice flowers. I like POV and composition of the image a lot, its nice colours and soft lights. It seems to me DOF is narrow a little bit. I use smaller aperture value at macro shooting always. However, it is not a point. Best wishes and TFS.
