Small Tortoiseshell .....

Teasels are a great source of nectar for Butterflies and honey bees and this chap is certainly making the most of it.

My growing passion, maybe I should say enjoyment, for Butterfly photography is that it  fills the gap that July presents as far as bird photography is concerned.

It is certainly a different discipline that requires different field craft skills.

But what plants teasels are, certainly at their most colourful in July.


  1. So many species but birds and others utilise teasers, yet many people think they're ugly. Nice image too.

  2. Thanks Doug, dog days for birdlife at the moment, I have always rated teasels very highly in the food chain.
