I’d never seen one of these butterflies before, and nor had the couple walking the towpath in front of me…then we saw another about ten metres away! Extremely well camouflaged (probably why we’d not spotted them before) they were the only two I saw all afternoon.

    That’s an incredible photograph, just beautiful and so well captured. Not see one of those butterflies myself.

    What kind of camera do you have?

    Hi Julieanne

    I’ve been on the look out for more of these butterflies ever since I took that picture and have seen absolutely none! I’m using a little Panasonic LX1 at the moment, but a lot of the pictures on here have been taken with a Canon EOS450D — you can tell the Panasonic ones because they are wider.
