Scarcities on the wing

A trip into Northamptonshire last month spawned a day trip for next year (see this link) in search of Wood Whites and Black Hairstreaks. Wood Whites are like floating pieces of tissue paper whereas Black Hairstreaks, one of the UK’s scarcer species,  are tree top dwellers but it’s possible to find a few at ground level … as per the photos. Let me know if you’d like to make a booking.

    These are lovely! Butterflies are always such challenging subjects.
