Another shot caught on the walk that goes by the side of the Weymouth Relief Road, taken on 18/07/2017. This tends to be a very short-lived brood, so he did well to catch it, though we know it was still present on 24/07/2017.

Michael got these shots at our Broadcroft Quarry Butterfly Reserve on Portland, on 18/05/2017. He got another lovely shot of the butterfly on his shoe, which is so good for demonstrating how very small this butterfly is that we’ve put it on our species page to help people identify the species.
