Little quiz today - what specie of butterfly is shown on my picture?

Taken in Lodz Botanic Garden during sunday's walk on very promissing plant - Eryngium campestre (Field eryngo). Flowers of this plant were full of visitors - bumble-bees, bees, wasps, butterflies, flies of all sizes, colours and kinds. I'll post few pictures of them soon on TN.

As you know, I am better identifying fungi rather than butterflies, and with out some wing patterns it is imposible for me :)
I am amazed witht the close up factor you get with this lens, seems more than 1:1, and the quality is super!
Beautiful photo, I like the perfect lighting.
Best regards, Felipe.

No ID I'm afraid; however, I can say this: OUTSTANDING image.
What did you put in your morning coffee to be able to register such a WONDERFUL MACRO??? So very detailed.

My name is Vanessa (or that's what it says on my card..u..i...)
Now give me a difficult one ;-)
Only kidding - particularly fine eye detail, and I appreciate the humour. EXIF data would have been nice, just to see what aperture was used.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hi Grzegorz,

Outstanding close-up
Colors, sharpnes and DOF are PERFECT
lovely composed

Hello Greg,
Your close macros are very professional with superb quality!
I agree with Nigel: this is Vanessa cardui.
Thanks for your useful note on Eryngium campestre: we must plant it in our garden!
Best wishes,

Hallo Grzegorz,
i think, Nigel is right about the ID; superb macro shot with incredible fine detail, marvellous colours with flash exposure, a very pleasing composition with a great visual impression
Best regards

Experts have answered your quiz, successfully, I hope, Greg.
A brilliant macro of the face and eye of this species of butterflies.
That they too have eyelashes is amply demonstrated here.
Well done and TFS.

Witaj Grzegorzu,
Świetny strzał i znakomita rekomendacja dla Tokiny. Słyszałem dużo dobrego o tym obiektywie. Jakość jest tutaj fantastyczna. Mam wrażenie, że obok obiektywu użyłeś tutaj jeszcze czegoś dodatkowego (pierścienie pośrednie lub dodatkowy konwerter makro). W każdym razie ostrość i głębia ostrości są powalające. Marzę o takich zdjęciach, ale to daleka droga jeszcze.
Kolory fantastyczne. Widaś przydatność doświetlenia lampą błyskową.
Pozdrawiam sedecznie,
