|Melanargis galathea The Marbled White|
Whilst struggling to make a good picture of the Large Blues yesterday, I was able to watch a great many Marbled Whites cruising over the chalk slopes at Collard Hill. During a lull in the Large Blue activity, I came across this specimen, who was lazier than most and agreeably sat still for a while in the sun. If only the Blues had been as co-operative.
Hand-held in good sunlight with some fill-in flash. Post processing in Photoshop Elements. Thanks for looking.
Thanks to Maurizio for correcting my stupidity in calling this aergeria earlier. Not thinking too well today!!

a "lapsus" Melanargia galathea, the binomial name; a superb macro shot of the Marbled White taken from an excellent POV with outstanding sharpness and marvellous colours, a very pleasant composition with a splendid environment.
