SMALL HEATH

By PhilG_DPAGB  
Taken yesterday evening. A diminutive little butterfly just 30mm wingspan. I was pleased to capture this one with the upper wing eye spot showing. This is so that predators eg; birds will go for the wing sooner that a more vulnerable part of the body. Would have liked to have used 1 stop smaller aperture - but too much wind and this would have shown a cluttered background which I do not like.
