Wonderful shots of these tricky to photograph little blighters! :o)
I'm off to Blean Woods today where they have the rare Heath Fritillary so if I spot any I'll let you know. I think it may be a little late in the year for them now though but I'll keep my eyes out for them.
It is good to see Butterflies about.
Hope you had a nice day at Blean Woods. Look forward to seeing what's about.
