    Default Last of the butterflies at Hosehill lake

    There were still a few stragglers at Hosehill lake on Sunday, mostly Whites, but the odd Speckled Wood and a solitary, rather battered Common Blue.

    Olympus Evolt E520, and borrowed lenses and flash. Fuji Finepix S7000 for Macro A chair :)

    I saw a few at the weekend, a couple being as battered as your Common Blue. In fact I saw more in one place than I'd seen all summer other than that Hosehill bird-ringing trip.
