Small heath butterfly
This is the only small heath i have ever seen, it landed about 15 inches from my feet, in strong wind, almost did a the moonwalk to back up, got just two shots and just one was in focus.

Taken at Radwell Bedfordshire, along the river ouse.

Are these getting rare?, started macro in 2013 and up to now it's the only one i've seen.

Smashing close-up of this gem. Marvelous lighting, colors, detail, focus, and background. Excellent Katey!
Lovely focusing and detail. We get them in our garden most years.
