Thanks for flying in.
What a year! The meadows near here have been stunning, you might have noticed I keep posting about them! I've had a bit more luck with my butterfly photos, perseverance and sunny days have done the trick, oh and not getting too excited and wobbly when trying to focus. I've had to do a bit of searching online to be able to name these beauties and hopefully I've come up with the correct ones, do let me know if I've gone off-piste.

|Meadow Brown on maybe wild carrot, not sure.|
|Marbled White butterfly on red clover|
|Painted lady butterfly, if only I'd been round the other side.|
A Silver-washed fritilliary as above surprised us all by flying into the house! I chased it all afternoon to see whether it had the silver streaks on its underside and it did.
The wildflower meadow, packed full with life.
