At the end of May I was lucky enough to join a tour to the Spanish Pyrenees with buy Aurogra with the aim of photographing Lammergeiers as well as the other three European species of vultures. I am now pleased to announce that I will be joining future tours as a Co-Leader specialising in flowers and butterflies.
On that note it seems fitting to start, as we did, with a butterfly. This stunning Blue Spot Hairstreak was one of the first things we saw before we even reached our destination. We pulled off the road into a layby overlooking a beautiful lake, and this gorgeous butterfly was one of several species making the most of the Field Scabious and other wildflowers on the roadside.
