Pris­tine spec­i­men

Ross says… If you do your re­search you’ll know at what times of year par­tic­u­lar crea­tures are out and about. Com­mon Blue but­ter­flies, for ex­am­ple, hatch twice dur­ing the sum­mer, and we were lucky enough to find a young spec­i­men to pho­to­graph here – the scales on its wings in par­tic­u­lar were fan­tas­tic. The older a but­ter­fly is, the more likely it is to look a bit tatty. Al­ways try and find goodqual­ity sub­jects to pho­to­graph, whether you’re shoot­ing in­sects, flow­ers or even sim­pler sub­jects, such as leaves.
