Fabulous photos folks, I've still yet to get a photo of a butterfly or moth, they're around, but nowt enticing them into the garden.
Noisette: RSPB Conwy, on of the reserves I regularly visit, they have a lot of six spot burnett moths, and they look dazzling in the sun. Sadly I very much doubt I'll get to see them this year.

Caroline, so sorry your butterfly trip to Croatia won't now happen. I was looking forward to what you would see. You must be gutted. - hopefully, next year.

In reply to TeeJay:
Very disappointed but have accepted offer for next year so fingers are firmly crossed that this all starts to sort itself out

Fortunately am in no hurry to join the rest of the world H, quite content with my garden & life in the quarry ... all birds & sunshine & blue skies plus this beauty dug up by my neighbour & been residing in a pot on my dining table ... may only be a common LYU but so lovely when pristine & it flew away very strongly
Very pleasing light coloured version & such bright beady eyes!

Just heard tonight that the numbers are rising in this part of the country, we are in the north west so I'm not surprised. Will be staying home until this next holiday is over. Took a couple of photos the other day,
Is it Green veined white Pieris?
Sorry not as good as they should be, need practice with these butterflies:-)
