This is a small cabbage white butterfly enjoying the nectar of a buddleia bush! Last year wasn't a particularly good year for butterflies in the UK by all accounts, but it seemed like these little guys were everywhere!

Great macro, Ian. I thought there were fewer butterflies last year even though the weather was so sunny.

A lovely macro shot, excellent detail. These must be spread more widely than any other butterfly - we have them here also.
