As the title suggests this post is all about the Butterflies and a pair of damselflies found at Blashford Lakes nature reserve last Sunday.
To begin with my 1st sighting at this reserve of the Silver-washed Fritillary butterfly (Argynnis paphia).
The classic side on shot
Face on pose
and Up, up and away!
I also managed to photograph the Red Admiral butterfly (Vanessa atalanta), side on and birds eye.
The damsels were a pair of mating Common Blue damselflies (Enallagma cyathigerum), which I managed to bracket and process a 5 image stack of.
For record purposes the other butterflies spotted on the day were Gatekeepers and Ringlets.
