Lately already majority herbage cease blossoming and one with last flowerage is chrysanthemum.So this last chance butterflies in plenty exploitation.For example on this photos:Nymphalis urticae.

Species:N. urticae

Binomial name:Nymphalis urticae

The Small Tortoiseshell (Nymphalis urticae) is a well-known colorful butterfly, found in temperate Europe. There are a few records from New York City which, however, are believed to have arrived human-assisted.
This is a species often found in gardens. The caterpillars feed on nettles, as do those of several Nymphalidae butterflies.
The adult is striking, with its dark body and red and yellow wings, which have a row of blue dots around the rear edge. However, the underwings are dull, which helps to conceal stationary or hibernating individuals.

Chrysanthemum is a genus of about 30 species of perennial flowering plants in the family Asteraceae, native to Asia and northeastern Europe. Amongst florists and in the floral industry, they are commonly referred to as "mums".
The genus once included many more species, but was split several decades ago into several genera; the naming of the genera has been contentious, but a ruling of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature in 1999 has resulted in the defining species of the genus being changed to Chrysanthemum indicum, thereby restoring the economically important florist's chrysanthemum to the genus Chrysanthemum. These species were, after the splitting of the genus but before the ICBN ruling, commonly treated under the genus name Dendranthema.
The other species previously treated in the narrow view of the genus Chrysanthemum are now transferred to the genus Glebionis. The other genera split off from Chrysanthemum include Argyranthemum, Leucanthemopsis, Leucanthemum, Rhodanthemum, and Tanacetum.
The species of Chrysanthemum are herbaceous perennial plants growing to 50-150 cm tall, with deeply lobed leaves and large flowerheads, white, yellow or pink in the wild species.

Helo Milos !
This is a wonderful picture, a butterfly surrounded by so much colorful flowers. The composition and POV are splendid, and the details on the butterfly are excellent, so sharp ! A beautiful frame too. Very well done !

A nice composition featuring the flowers and the Small Tortoiseshell, Milos.
I like the underside of this butterfly's wing which is as attractive as the upper side.
Very sharp and colourful image that aptly sums up your caption -- the last paradise in the cycle of life.
Well done and TFS.
