    Had a hunt for some small blue butterflies on Friday night with a view of going back early Sat morning to shoot them if I found any. Took a while but once I found one I found a good 4-5, I didn't realise they were so small approx 1.5cm! Sat morning the light was a bit dull and it was a little breezy but managed some shots which I'm pretty pleased with.

    I went back again this morning but failed to find one in the golden hour but still managed to find one as i was leaving so had to get a shot.

    Lovely! If you're down New Forest way, I'll point you to a good spot for silver studded blues.

    Super set Neil. I really can't decide between the first two; they are both real beauties.
