I like it very much indeed, compliments.

Maybe, imho, leaving a little bit more space between the butterfly and the shot borders would better convey the freedom concept usually associated to butterflies. Those borders so near to the butterfly look like being a cage to me.

Details of the wings are what caught my eye. Congrats on really a nice shot.

A very nice Meadow Brown. Not an easy species to sneak up on - if my local population is anything to go by.

Here's a link to a mated pair (the only thing that I've found that slows them down) -
