Rape, Ups and Downs

Kithurst Hill is designated as an area of outstanding beauty with butterflies, so I eagerly departed after a few days cooped up in the flat due to rain and wind. The views were typical South Downs - undulating sensual curves and when the sun finally appeared late morning the butterflies presented themselves for the camera. Green-veined whites, a rare Duke of Burgundy, Small blues; Dingy Skippers, a Speckled wood and a Small copper all appeared and shared the lens with some orchids. A steep woodland walk with some passing horse riders and another hiker were a pleasant contrast to the open downland.
