Beautiful Butterflies 2019

  • But does it matter??? I'd be proud if someone thought my photos worth nicking. Or do you sell them too? I consider anything I put on public forum as free to all. If someone else has the get up & go to make money from them, then good on them.

    Hazel, my photos are taken purely for pleasure, not for a scoundrel to make money from.

    With respect to you, and I do appreciate your comments, and the forum, that is my final comment, this is a butterfly thread, not copyright.

  • Sorry Mike, didn't mean to upset you, just can't get my head round it.

    This is a Small White caterpillar, which managed to cross Rons ash barrier around his recently planted out cabbages & ate one clean off. He brought it in for ID so I popped it in a pot & dropped it off in a field a few miles away.

    Morning Hazel,

    You haven't upset me, I was a little worried I may have upset you, or one or two forum users.

    We're all individual, some of us, and yes, I'm guilty as charged, have unique notions and ways. I accept your apology, and I'm sure we can move on with any concerns behind us, esp as I'm away for a few days, so I didn't want to leave any sour tastes.

    Lovely caterpillar..

  • Thanks Alan, we've been seeing a lot of Painted Lady's here too here & did read they were on their way to UK. I think they can track the migration on radar these days. Amazing!

  • Speckled Wood from this morning's walk,         There was a Small Skipper too but fluttered on out of camera reach before I could get a pic.

    Thanks Wendy, I couldn't get over the amount of butterflies I was seeing today, counted at least 30 P. Ladies on my walk, they were so fast too and rising from just in front of me. Funnily I walked this evening (before the sun set) along a lane where I thought there would be plenty of life but not a thing!!!

    Even I had one Painted Lady today Gaynor, bit too high up for decent pic but got this dodgy bit of footage through window ...
