Martin Down

A summers day walk amongst the chalk grasslands of Martins Down, was a good opportunity to take some marco photos of flowers and some butterflies.

There were plenty of these orchids about.

As well as a fair number of these dropworts.

In the grasses I managed to find some of these Common Blue butterflies.

Whilst this one had what I think was a caterpillar near it.
