    This little beaty sipped the Bluebell long enough for me to rattle off 5 shots.
    This was the best.

    Excellent Chocky. They are very pretty but very small and hard to catch in the lens, was chasing several around last week when out shooting birds, but I only had the big lens with me and by the time I got it focussed, the little devils had always moved on.

    Thankyou. I really was hanging about for ages . I watch the buterflies on the estuary and they seam to just kepp flying fom one end to the other and back again all the time, so I stayed in one place where I had seen it land a couple of times and finally captured it. I'm really pleased with it.
    The Orange Tips only fly in April and May .They Hybernate as a pupa.The pupa stage some times lasts almost a year.

    The equipment I use is a Canon 30D with Sigma 50-500mm lens. I also have a garden hide from which I take most of my pictures.
