I’ve just spent 5 days in the Puglia Region of southern Italy. The weather was of course really hot and sunny and therefore the perfect conditions for one of my favourite activities – photographing butterflies. Here is a small selection of my photos – fuller photo set here.
Always a favourite of mine – the swallowtail – pretty common everywhere we went (in the UK we have a sub species of the swallowtail which is smaller and subtly different – only now survives in the Norfolk Broads)
With climate change we can expect the swallowtail and the scarce swallowtail to colonise this country – they are both waiting just over the Channel!
A great short trip and a post to follow on the amazing baroque architecture and the distinctive houses of the region called trulli.
