Artist's Description

These are wild butterflies mating in the fields behind my home in the Fens of Cambridgeshire.

They are the darkest of our wild butterfly’s, with wings open a lovely chocalate brown. not as colourful as most but still a very beautiful butterly.

Unmistakable with either wings closed or open, there are at the moment thousands in the fields, all no doubt looking for partners, this one I think got lucky.

I must confess I felt like a bit of a peeping Tom.

Camera, Olympus E-30 with Olympus Zuiko 50-200mm lens
