Its the time of the year for Butterflies. The birds are looking a little worse for wear so attention swaps to the smaller and often prettier butterflies.

Here are a small selection of what I've seen whilst out and about lately.

This is a Small Skipper

Here's a Green Veined White.

Highest influx of Painted Lady butterflies since 1997,

The Red Admiral is, in my humble opinion, a much underrated butterfly, It can be very entertaining.

I doubt anyone would disagree that the Small Tortoiseshell is also a beautiful example of a lovely butterfly.

Small Copper butterflies are looking good right now, I got these at my spot near Sling.

Ditto this Pale Common Blue.

I was chatting to Andy Carey recently and he tells me he's only a few away from completing his list of every British butterfly, I don't think that is something I could acheive but I am impressed by his efforts, I would love to see more butterflies.
