Clouded yellow butterfly

I never get tired of taking pictures of beautiful butterfies and this clouded yellow is no exception. If possible I try to get a good picture of the eyes because some are beautiful and colourful, as you can see, this butterfly has very green eyes which go perfectly with its yellow appearance. The only problem with this butterfly is that it always settles on a flower with its wings closed, so it is almost impossible to get a picture of the upper wings. I suspect that any you might see may well be pictures of dead specimens. All butterflies like purple flowers, so if you want to attract them to your garden be sure to add some plants like lavender, scabious, or buddleia (watch a peacock butterfly on a buddleia) buddleia
