Painting of a Chalkhill Blue butterfly on a Ragwort flower by Brian Jessop

Chalkhill Blue butterfly on Ragwort by Brian Jessop 2014.


In 1995 Brian was recording butterflies in Tring Park for Butterfly Conservation, and suddenly decided that he would like to paint them as well!

He has very kindly donated this watercolour to the Upper Thames Branch of Butterfly Conservation. We intend to sell it, with the proceeds being used for our ongoing conservation work.
