Dry-weather butterflies

It may be too early to tell whether the prolonged dry spell has affected butterfly numbers; so far things are not looking too bad, with these apparently enjoying the sun in the garden (plus a few holly blues and the odd comma that I didn’t manage to photograph). I was surprised to find that nearly all the whites were green-veined:

Gatekeeper (Pyronia tithonus)

Green-veined white (Pieris napi)

Green-veined white (Pieris napi)
Ringlet (Aphantopus hyperantus)

Meadow Brown (Maniola jurtina)
Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta)
