Faded Beauty

A little ragged round the edges and a tad faded, but still beautiful, this Small Tortoiseshell butterfly spotted on a head of Common Knapweed yesterday.

The butterfly was enjoying a nice feed and I didn't want to disturb it, so just grabbed a couple of quick images before moving on.

As you can see Tilly was not impressed by my paying attention to another creature...

Oi! Me, you're supposed to pay attention to me!
