I think you're getting a bit too good at this Holly Blue whispering Dave - a pristine specimen in mid November :shock: :shock: :mrgreen: You're not just getting them to open their wings but now you're getting them to leave their Chrysalis :shock: :wink:

SO we bundled into the cars and headed over. When we arrived there was a slightly autumnal...

Cheers Andrew :D Glad it helped get you through the afternoon, Friday is the most painful afternoon of the week - if I had my way I'd ban people from working from around midnight on a Thursday...but then I suppose Thursday afternoons would become the new Friday? :?

Duke of Burgundy I only encountered a single Duke this year at my Duke site despite making several visits. Of the few shots that I got this was my favourite due to the unusual pose and the way the light shone through the wings when it climbed tarsi over tarsi along a blade of grass. DSC_1012 - Copy....
