Dragons and Butterflies

It’s always difficult to be sure that the weather will be suitable for insects when I book a tour so far in advance. However pick the right time, the right place and even a little sunshine will bring benefits. This years day tour for Norfolk Hawkers and Swallowtails went well with good views of both species being obtained.

Norfolk’s premier butterfly

The first hatch of Swallowtail Butterflies was in the air on a tour last week. This particular pristine individual played ball with us … approaching us to within inches.

Our Largest Butterfly

Swallowtail Butterflies are just the best aren’t they? There were many around the broads after their first hatch this year – ideal for photographers.

Out Swallowed

We were photographing tiny hairstreak butterflies the other day when the opposite end of the size spectrum flew by. A Swallowtail passed right under my nose and alighted on flowers nearby. it continued to feed and allowed a close enough approach for a few shots, I even had time to change to a macro lens.
