Romania: butterflies

We were really lucky on this trip – not only did we see bears and birds – we also had some fabulous views of butterflies.  Some butterflies, like the Silver-washed Fritillary, will land and pose for photographs.  Others are far less co-operative.  The Clouded Yellow took off every time I approached and I struggled to get any sort of camera shot.
