Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths)

Challenge #38 in the Frame of Mind series. Hosted by Dutch Newchurch.
Challenge has finished
Show one or two great photographs of one or more butterflies or moths. The winning photograph will be technically excellent, without burnt highlights or blocked shadows (probably shot in soft light). The creature will be sharp, with a clean background, without distractions. It will show the animal in its natural habitat, perhaps engaging in behaviour typical of its species. (By happy coincidence, today, 5 April I saw three butterflies. The first of 2018.)
