Lacewing With their bright green bod­ies, golden me­tal­lic eyes and del­i­cate, trans­par­ent wings, lacewings are un­mis­tak­able. They feed on aphids, so are a favourite among gar­den­ers. Back­light­ing will high­light their shape, form and the translu­cency of their in­cred­i­ble wings. A macro lens is the best op­tion for frame-fill­ing shots.

Band ed De­moi­sell e

Banded demoi­selles can be found along slow-flow­ing low­land streams and rivers. The male has a dark, blue-black band across the cen­tral por­tion of its wings – the fe­male is iri­des­cent pale-green. They can be flighty and tricky to ap­proach dur­ing day­time, so a longer fo­cal length is ad­vis­able to gen­er­ate a prac­ti­cal work­ing dis­tance.

Mar­bled White

A wide­spread but beau­ti­ful Bri­tish but­ter­fly with dis­tinct black-and-white mark­ings, the Mar­bled White favours grass­land and, be­ing a larger, lazier but­ter­fly, is a good sub­ject for new­com­ers to in­sect pho­tog­ra­phy. They look par­tic­u­larly pho­to­genic when back­lit by warm, evening sun­light.
