August 1st: Alners Gorse, Dorset.
He's intently watching her, waiting for his chance... look closely and you can see his fixed gaze in her direction.
Onto July again quite busy but not as much as May and June as I had to pace myself a bit better.
July 2nd: Portland and Stobourgh Heath, Dorset.
An early morning start on Portland hoping to see the Large Tortoiseshell found the previous afternoon. Thought I was going to be out of luck but eventually it was spotted resting on the ground warming up in the first of the morning sunshine.
After a while it began nectaring on the Red Valarian along the side of the old railway cutting giving some great photo opportunities.
