Pleasing macro shot of the butterfly on the corn flower.

I like the muted colors and the comp. The butterfly is a pretty one, but wish it was sharper to see more details. Do you know the name of this butterfly? ;-)

Have no about the name of this butterfly - I am pretty bad with zoology...

Being of the same mind as Mark I had to find out what this butterfly might be called and the closest I can come is a variety of Admiral Butterfly (red spotted purple Admiral butterfly). Most of the pictures I saw of this butterfly in a Google had them with their wings spread and viewed from above and that coloring as not similar to one here but a couple had their wings folded and they looked very similar to the butterfly in the picture.
