A small tortoiseshell butterfly in a garden in Sussex, UK on 13 June 2011.

The Small Tortoiseshell is one of our most familiar butterflies, appearing in gardens throughout the British Isles. Unfortunately, this butterfly has suffered a worrying decline, especially in the south, over the last few years.

Sometimes mistaken for the red admiral butterfly.

Camera information: Nikon D7000, shot in raw, 18-200 at 200mm, f/5.6, 1/125s, iso 110: software Capture nX2
