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.
Well done Malcolm, harder than we think to catch these flutterbys.

Aye Dougie, I chased a painted lady without success - but that's another story.....

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