British butterflies pose much better than American butterflies.

Great photo's! And now doubt they are proper British butterflies. As you can see in the last photo, it obviously has a stiff upper lip

Gorgeous photos. Some of the butterflies look very similar to the eastern tailed-blue we see here in the US, and that orange skipper looks familiar, too.
