I may as well change the title of this blog to 'Common Darter portraits' for the duration of August, September and probably October. I can't help it if they're very photogenic and cooperative.
Will I ever get the definitive Common Darter shot? Don't think so.
Painted Lady - the first I've seen for a while. Numbers of butterflies are still well down, after all the rain
