Leigh Prevost alerted me to the presence of this (slightly tatty) beauty in East Sussex, so at 7am this morning the two of us trudged up Windover Hill in less than promising conditions. After some time searching the hillside in the mist and rain the butterfly was eventually found (not by me) apparently in exactly the same spot it has been since Friday evening. Never thought I would twitch a butterfly!

What an amazing looking butterfly. He is beautiful! And so are your shots of it. Great work, Gary.
