Micro Lepidoptera

An interesting subject group to study with over 1600 species recorded in the British Isles. This gallery is made up of a small selection of species photographed by Doug Fairweather and myself in Yorkshire. Some are record shots, but this group aren’t necessarily the easiest of subjects to allow portrait shots.
