Small Tortoiseshell (Aglais urticae) so my son thinks.
So I looked it up and it does appear to match the picture i'm looking at.
Great close up i've yet to perfect that technique with my present camera.

Thank you seabird, i had no idea what kind it was, but they seem to be very common here.

I haven't been fortunate enough to capture a photo of a butterfly on my camera. By the time I get set up they have flown away.

Good capture.

Has anyone been on any of Mary Leggs butterfly walks? There is one this year as part of the Highland Encounters leaflet but I am not sure when.

Keep the pictures coming they are such elegant wee things.
