All purpled out!

I’ve been living in the Malvern Hills area in Worcestershire for about 3 years.  Whilst driving around, I noticed this large patch of Devil’s Bit Scabious in flower with around 10 Small Tortoiseshells nectaring on them.  Not missing an opportunity in perfect light, I grabbed the camera and got snapping away.  2 and a half  hours later and almost 8gb of memory in the bag, I packed up and went home hoping that I’d made the most of the opportunities.  This is the first time I’ve photographed Small Tortoiseshell butterflies so I was very pleased with the results.  Here’s some of the edited images.  Enjoy!
