Many thanks for all the feedback on yesterday's Silver Studded Blue, i really do appreciate it.

Here's an underside shot of a beautiful Dark Green Fritillary taken recently.

Got a bit of catching up to do later as i was out with Ben last night at a Peter Hook (ex New Order) gig in Buxton and we're off out soon to see if there are any second brood Common Blues in a local meadow.

Fabulous sharp capture Nigel, stunning butterfly, would love to know where to see these! Been shooting some common species in my garden recently and really got the bug. Will be following your work from now on, Andy
