Hi Goldie. Because they are almost on my doorstep, it needed a call from my son to get me out looking for them :lol: I may be coming up to Cumbria myself, soon, to look for the Dark Red Helleborine, which is one of the British orchids that I've not yet managed to photograph. I shall keep a look out for Northern butterfly species, too.

Mike,

Nice photos from Bernwood. I like the angle on that White Admiral. Glad you got a good shot of the Black Hairstreak. Not the easiest to capture. I saw my first ever ones last weekend and they were very obliging too. It's been a bumper summer for them this year at most locations.

Regards Kev

Thank you for commenting on the White Ad, Kev. It was a little too high for comfortable photography and I was struggling to get into a position where I felt there would be sufficient depth of field to keep a reasonable amount of the butterfly in focus. It was another of those occasions where I took lots of shots and only this one was adequate - thank goodness for digital :)
