Wildlife Crime

The origins of this blog were based in macro photography: European orchids, and butterflies in particular.  Three years ago I posted a blog entry celebrating my first UK sightings of the Large Blue (Maculinea arion), at the location of one of its reintroductions:

It is dismaying that this site is in the UK news today because of the criminal activities of a butterfly collector:

Will these people never learn?

Leave the countryside and its inhabitants alone, for everyone to enjoy, will you please??
