Welcome to TN simon, nice capture of this classic late spring butterfly, nicely seen good details and BG OOF enough to show them up well.
As to her facing him they usually face away from each other as they mate tail to tail I have even seen her fly off towing him behind her.
TFS and hope to see more from you . yours Robert

HI Simon,
Nice shot.
Great composition.
I like the OOF BG it helps make your subjects stand out.
I supose she has to look away from him because she can't close her eyes ;)
Nice work

Hi Simon,
very good document, showing both sexes, their way of camouflage, and their natural habitat.
Thanks for sharing!
Best regards,
