Small copper I think you’ll find. Been seeing a few, but this is the first one that sat still enough to get a shot of.
Another garden butterfly tick, hot on the heels of the ringlet, but this is a Holly Blue, perhaps a female [Insert observation regarding repeated use of bus analogy here].
If you have been reading bird blogs for a while, you will notice the seasonal changes. It goes a little something like this.
Autumn – wow! Birds are brilliant and my patch is full of migrants and stuff! I’ll write about it! It’s windy!
Winter – wow! Birds are brilliant and my patch is full of winter birds and stuff! I’ll write about it! It’s cold!
Spring – wow! Birds are brilliant and my patch is full of migrants and stuff! I’ll write about it! The days are getting longer!
Summer – Oh, all the summer birds are breeding and I can’t see them for the trees. Boring. Have you seen my butterfly/moth photos?
For the sake of compliance in my little theory, here is another blue butterfly with a massively overexposed background. I think it is a female blue one, but it would seem that my bug book is a little sexist and doesn’t like pictures of certain female butterflies.
A dearth perhaps. Lots to say, but no time to tell.
Have a picture of a butterfly. Can’t locate mybug book so at the moment it is identified as ‘a blue one’. There are loads of them in the patch.
