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.

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)

In reply to Noisette:
Hazel C said:Green Veined White for the last one. Maybe TJ can help
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.
Out for a tramp (don't worry, he got away!) over the fields and it was pretty much bird free but did spot....
Then 2 that I don't know, but may or may not be moths..
And some very pretty, teeeeeeeny weeeeeeny flowers (Mrs PB spotted the orangey red one)
and also very pretty, Field Bindweed
Veronica filliformis is the blue one ( according to google) orangey red one is Scarlet Pimpernel
Butterfly is Large White
