Just a little update to sum up the joys of our vintage summer: we've been in Bradford overnight and here's the scene on lavender outside my uncle's home. I'd intended to focus on the Small Tortoiseshell but failed, not untypically, as other pictures in the short series I took showed me.
But Hooray for this bumble bee, which obligingly flew into the empty space where the focus actually was. I then adjusted the camera and managed to get the butterfly sorted out too. As below.
