Butterflies and Insects

Butterflies and Insects of the UK

Butterflies are so beautiful and to me mean that there is still hope for nature when I see them.

I work in many places in Sussex to try and conserve habitats for butterflies. Most of the habitat work takes place in the winter so in the summer I like to visit the chalk grassland and woodlands where I work and try and photograph these magical creatures.

I also love the gleaming scales, aerial mastery and prehistoric beauty of dragonflies. Even harder to capture in flight than birds these creatures are a real challenge to photograph.
