Winging it's way across the garden I wasn't going to lose this small tortoiseshell butterfly if I could help it, as it was the first I'd seen since last summer! 

Macro lens on for the first time in a while I was doing the rounds to see if there were any insects around and this was fortuitously flushed off a flower by Poppy but proceeded to fly away at speed. Chasing it around proved pointless and eventually we both ended up back at the starting point. Lovely to see - a real spirit lifter and I found myself smiling lying on the damp grass getting the shot (or two ... or more ...many more.......)
