A few days away.

At the beginning of the week we were staying in Winchester so we went across to Bentley Wood hoping for Purple Emperor, no such luck. We also called in at Collard Hill on the way up and back for Large Blue but all we got for our troubles was a Marbled White and a lot of rain.

  2. Sorry about the Purple Emperor but that's difficult. Top shots, I think I need a macro lens. Well done. Mike

  3. As usual, consistently amazing images from you. However, the one of the damselfly put a big smile on my face. Excellent!, and thanks for sharing them with us.

  4. Purple Emperor!, you were lucky getting a Marbled White John, what with the awful weather we have had. Not seen a Marbled White in the place I would normally expect to see as yet this year.

  14. The Marbled White is so lovely, a good find regardless!! I have been seeing Ringlets too, and a few Swallowtails, but not many more butterflies.The dragonfly and mating bugs are also good finds and splendid macros.
