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!
