Eye-catching colours! Have seen so few Small Tortoiseshells this year - lovely to see yours.

Such a beauty especially with the blue at tips of wings
which so widely spread lets us see every detail.

Beautiful vibrant colour, Malcolm. I have set myself a task to capture at least one more of these damned elusive things this summer!!
