Being the proud owner of a rather lovely new Nikon D5000 I have been getting out and about as much as possible this summer exploring conservation areas for butterflies, wild orchids and as ever, inspiration. A few weeks ago I was introduced to Yew Tree Hill part of the conservation land managed by the charity The British Butterfly Conservation Society.
A marbled white had some kind of tumour or canker on the hind left wing and could only fly in very low circles. Settling on my hand for a few minutes I had the opportunity to take this whilst discussing how to hide from hungry sparrows.
Yew Tree is a wonderful location for butterflies and day flying moths, I highly recommend a visit, you may just see some of these…
and they might just see you!
