Amazing how much these butterflies resemble Spring leaves.... Beautiful light and detail! Well done =)

Most specific, and rather not so much spring than summer, its the crown leafs of Cirsium oleraceum they can get barely distinguished of when they sit around the big flowers like a table, but they are also well camouflaged in linden trees and similar. On a campion it's less well hidden.
