More butterflies!

More butterflies!


Another good day out took me to Lardon Chase in Berkshire, overlooking the River Thames above Streatley.  Here I found some fellow enthusiasts and we spent some time enjoying the sights: in particular, Common Blue, Small Blue, and Adonis Blue.  Still seemed a bit odd not to see either Small Copper or Brown Argus at this downland site, though.


All shots taken handheld at or around flash-sync speed with D800E/200f4micro/cpl/SB600+softbox



Common Blue
