Ringlet Butterfly

A Ringlet Butterfly (Aphantopus hyperantus) feeding on Bramble flowers (Rubus fruticosus agg.) along the banks of the Royal Canal near the 15th lock just a little east of the village of Kilcock.

 

This shot was tweaked a little using Aperture's Dodge & Burn plugin to darken the background and lighten the butterfly to help it stand out a little better.

 

This shot featured on my blog as Photo of the Week 168 & 169 - Butterflies.
