We've gone from famine to glut in the last few weeks! There are lots of Small Tortoiseshell about now - my Sedum is covered in them, all enjoying the late afternoon sunshine!

I could sit and watch them for hours, their colours shimmer as they walk around - absolutely beautiful!

Very well captured, lovely colour and detail, fortunately these beautiful butterflies are having a much better year than the last few years.
