Many thanks for all your kind messages, it's great to hear from you.
Here's a few butterflies for you. Needless to say they kept fluttering about while I tried to focus on them and some only opened up their wings when the camera batteries went flat!
I'm not a butterfly expert but I think this one is a speckled wood
How about a gatekeeper?
and a holly blue
With a damselfly to finish off with.
How lucky we are to have all these varied insects flying about around us!
