At the weekend I spent a good hour ( minus a butterfly net, I need one! ) chasing butterflies. When I took part in #30dayswild back in June, we were sadly lacking in butterfly action here in the North West. July though, and those flutterbys are everywhere. I think the eruption of summer flowers such as thistles, meadow sweet and meadow cranesbill plus the mild weather has coaxed them out of their cocoons. 🙂 As well as the butterflies spotted below, I spied Cabbage Whites and a Peacock butterfly that I couldn’t catch on camera.
I hope to see a few more species over the summer. Oh if you like flowers, you may enjoy my little giveaway , two posts before this one. :))
