There is so much movement in the garden on these very warm sunny days. It is just lovely to see the butterflies flitting from flower to flower and amongst the long grass.
Photographing them is more of a challenge but here are six that I have managed to capture in the last few days.
One: Comma (Polygonia c-album) (Family: Nymphalidae)
This second picture shows the very characteristic white comma on the underside of the wing that gives it is common name.
Two: Large white (Pieris brassicae) (Family: Pieridae)
Three: Peacock (Inachis io) (Family: Nymphalidae)
Four: Small White (Pieris rapae) (or possibly Wood White) (Family: Pieridae)
This white butterfly is very much smaller than the Large White and seems to rarely land to have its photograph taken. I am not entirely sure which species this is so happy to be corrected.
Five: Meadow Brown (Maniola jurtina) (Family: Nymphalidae)
Six: Gatekeeper (Pyronia tithonus) (Family: Nymphalidae)
In addition there have been others over the last week or so that I have not yet been able to photograph. These include the yellow Brimstone, Small Tortoiseshell and Speckled Wood
