Butterflies of 2013

Whilst most of my time is consumed chasing birds now and again my attention can be drawn to butterflies and this year has seen me connect with a few firsts here too.

At Strumpshaw Fen I found my first Swallowtail and was fortunate enough to grab a few photographs of it.

In Kent the warm weather brought out some Long-Tailed Blues and again I just about managed to catch one on the camera.

And it seemed as though Clouded Yellows were everywhere this summer.

My very first Purple Emperor
Hoping I can add one or two more to my butterfly list in 2014. (Of course I have a list!)
