Butterfly ritual

In today's sunshine I decided to walk Biscuit along a shady path under the leafy trees.
There were hundreds of midges, flies and the like darting through the dappled light - impossible to photograph.
I then spotted three butterflies wheeling and circling in the dappled light and I thought I'd try capturing them with my camera.

Here is the sequence ..............
Scene 1

Scene 2

Scene 3
you can just espy the odd midge as dots

Scene 4

Scene 5
and it seems as if they had lost interest ... but one of them flew down and rested on a plant ......

Obviously shagged out  



well done

Speckled Woods. We have some of them in our garden but I don't think that we have as many this year.
