This is image 014. Someone asked me today what my best image of 2011 was and this is probably it. A lot of research and planning went into this image and hopefully the result was worth while. It is one of my all time favourite images. It is an adult male Orange Tip butterfly roosting on top of a Bluebell flower. Just proves that the best images are usually taken a stones throw away from your doorstep.
Orange tip butterfly, Anthocharis cardamines, Malvern Hills, Worcestershire, April, 2011.
