Six Spot Burnet Climbing by Joe Vary

Six Spot Burnet Climbing is part of Wild and Free, a collection of wildlife portraits capturing some of our planet’s incredible wildlife.  This photograph captures the colourful and hairy Six Spot Burnet (Zygaena filipendulae) climbing a Common Spotted Orchid stem (Dactylorhiza fuchsii).

This photo was captured in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  In early summer, the Six Spot Burnet can be spotted as red and black moths flying over grassland and laying eggs.  Meanwhile the beautiful yellow and black caterpillars can be found feeding on leaves and climbing stems of herbaceous plants as in this photograph.



All of my photographs are printed on Fuji DP II Professional Colour Paper.  This stunning paper delivers beautiful tones, sharpness and all round image quality.

It is coated with a slightly stippled texture and is very resistant to fingerprints and scuffs.  Fuji DP II Professional Colour Paper has a semi-matt finish with minimal glare.

N.B: If you would like your photo printed on a different type of paper, please do get in touch as I may be able to print to your specification.

Each photograph is printed with a one inch white border.  This allows for easy mounting or may serve as a minimalistic border in its own right.

None of the prints that I sell arrive with a frame.  However, I can recommend The Frame Company for custom sized frames.

Yes I can.  If you would like one of my photographs printed to a specific size or on a different type of paper, please do get in touch to discuss your requirements. 

None of the prints that I provide are limited edition.
