Artist's Description

Taken on the clifftop on a Wildlife Walk in Tintagel, Cornwall, early June. This one is a male. According to “Butterflies and Other Insects of Britain” (The Reader’s Digest Association, 1984) the wings do not contain any blue pigment but diffract only blue, while absorbing all the other colours! Pentax K10D, 1/600 sec, f 7.1, ISO 400, 200 mm lens.
