Yesterday's butterfly seemed to go down very well on here so I've dug up another one that I've been hanging on to for a while.

This is a Wood White, a tiny butterfly that is only found in a few places in SW Britain and Southern Ireland, so not that common really.

I drove for 2 hours to a woods in Hereford where I knew they'd be to get this shot, crazy?, yep, that's me Wink

The detail is very good in this sharp image. I also like the accurate and subtle colour as well as the composition which makes good use of the stem slanted across to the left and the butterfly's wings slanting in the other direction making a triangle. Superb shot.

Charles.

Cracking capture Phil. One of the UK's most rapidly declining butterflies but its showing signs of recovery in Herefordshire, thanks to a three-year conservation project being led by the Forestry Commission and Butterfly Conservation Trust to help safeguard the future of the beautiful and rare Wood White butterfly in the county, which is one of the few remaining strongholds for the species in Britain. The Wood White butterfly has become a rarer sight in England's countryside with numbers falling so low in the past decade that it is now considered endangered. Let's hope they are successful or it will only be images like this of them that you will be able to see.

Regards
Terry.
