    Lovely photos of the Red Admirals, Alan and Hazel. I think they are all enjoying the sunshine.

    Real overcast now with hint of drizzle :(

    Send it down here. I'm melting in the heat here. It's in the low 30's again. Far too hot to be outside.

  • Rather toasty here on the Surrey-Hampshire border, too.

    Kind regards,

  • Good to see plenty of butterflies still around;   these were at Woolston Eyes NR this morning

    Dozens of Speckled Woods around 

    Still quite a few Painted Ladies too although this was somewhat tattier than previous ones I saw 

    The three Small Tortoiseshells I saw were pristine but unfortunately too high to get a decent photograph angle 

    then I found one on the grass …………   still not the best angle but at least you can see it better !

    and lastly Green-veined White  (thanks to Hazel, Wendy, Tony)

  • Lovely photos Hazy, I'm tempted to say Green Veined White for the last one. Maybe TJ can help.

    Best wishes

    Oh crikey, no pressure then.

    Having looked at my book I think you and Wendy are probably right. It looks like a summer generation male Green-veined White. Tricky one.
