The Common Blue Butterflies have once again returned to the meadows surrounding Würzburg,
Here are the results of my first outing photographing them this season .
A couple classically posed
A male singled out
I was particularly pleased to get a couple of images of them with their wings open.
The Male Common Blue with its striking blue wings
and the not so striking but still very beautiful Female.
What a difference a week makes!!
My first butterfly shot of the year and my first every sighting of an Orange Tip Butterfly. I had nearly finished up for the morning and was walking back to the car when I noticed this butterfly warming itself in the early morning sun perched on the end of what I think was the stem of cowslip.
