Tight Lipped Tuesday #34

Had to share this.

 

 I never seem to be able to get good photos of butterflies as they are more often than not on the move so, even though I thought it might be dead at first, I was pleased to see this Small Tortoiseshell so still and posed with its beautiful wings spread out.  Happy ending –  it was just warming up its wings in a patch of sunlight and, after a gentle prod with a blade of grass, it was off.

      Gorgeous isn’t it. Today we saw a Large Tortoiseshell but it actually looked smaller to me.

    They’re little works of art, aren’t they? Well done on capturing it so well. One day, I’ll succeed in getting a photo of a Ulysses butterfly – you see them here but they’re much more common in the Far North. Huge, and amazing…
