Butterflies….

There are so many butterflies on the wing this summer. My lunchtime walks have seen dozens dancing away from every footstep.

I have sharpened up my identification skills – relatively at least – and also tried my hand at a few photographs….it’s not easy without a viewfinder and the detail is lacking a little, but I doff my cap to those with the patience and skill to get those shots that put mine to shame.

There have been masses of ringlets on the brambles…

And one snoozing with wings closed…..

And the gatekeepers have recently emerged.

Samll skippers flit across the long grass…

And the silver washed fritillaries add a touch of dash beneath the trees.

A hazy afternoon filled will flutter. Magic.
