    "I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man".

    Another macro shot from Arlington Reservoir but of a beautiful butterfly this time.
    I'm very bad with names so not sure which butterfly this is but please feel free to give the name in your comment or via a tag.
    I was very pleased to get this shot because every time I get near a butterfly they just fly away.
    i handheld this shot and kept creeping nearer and nearer until I could fill the frame before he flew away.
    Thanks to Richard for pointing out that I have left out my press 'L' on your keyboard on my previous picture, I was rushing due to tiredness at work.
    Check out Richards work via his tag on the right.
    Thanks for all your comments, favs and views everyone.

    For your ultimate flutterby experience press 'L' on your keyboard :)

      Another superb capture! Incredible detail and bright colour.
      I believe the buttterfly is a male Small White. It is similar to a Large White, but has a single spot on the wing, which the Large White lacks. The flower is Common Ragwort.
      Very pretty, Simon.

      What a shot! Nature in the raw - or in this case quite soft and fluffy
