More butterflies

A few weeks ago I commented that we didn’t seem to have as many butterflies as usual. Perhaps I was unduly pessimistic – things seem to have picked up, with large numbers of Peacocks, a few Red Admirals, the odd Comma (but never when I’ve got the camera!) and – a special delight as I haven’t seen them here for several years – quite a few Small Tortoiseshells:

Small Tortoiseshell (Aglais urticae)
Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta)
Butterflies in flight
Speckled Wood (Pararge aegaria)

  1. Nice pictures. I like the second one.

  2. Cracking speckled wood! I’ve noticed that in many of the places I’ve visited recently the butterflies are all just starting to come on nicely, I’ve seen more variety in London than I have in several years too. We seem to get a lot of commas in Tottenham for some reason!
