The Brown Argus was a new butterfly to me this year. This one was found on the chalky slopes of Martin Down in Salisbury, and it is actually very small. A great looking butterfly though.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

I'm really enjoying this butterfly season. It seems like there has been a real explosion just recently. Speckled Woods seem to be the most abundant, but they are real pains to get a picture of. Move within a metre or two of them and they're off, and waiting for them to settle again is a pointless task. LA long lens was my only hope, as I managed to get a couple of okay shots, but not the open winged ones that I wanted.

We get a lot of butterflies here in Normandy and this year is no exception but my photography skills (and camera) are not up to getting decent shots.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing these great photos on #AnimalTales - I didn't realise your interest spread it's wings beyond birds but I am glad it does!
