My Flickr photos
At Lodmore (Weymouth today)
Slightly tatty Painted Lady
An not tatty speckled wood (I guess as it's speckled and wood coloured!)
And, right out on a limb here, as it's white with what looks like green veins... a Green Veined White?

A nice butterfly collection. I think they are on their last legs further north as sightings are now getting much rarer.

Well, wood that's been creosoted, possibly!!!
In reply to Nigel O:
Everyone one else has been getting Green-veined whites, so I'll put one up, too
It's not one of their best well-known features, but I think butterflies have beautiful eyes.
Still getting Speckled wood in very good condition in my garden
