Last week we had an amazing day of flutters, and naturally I had to spend most of my day stalking them.
We’ll start with this large moth; I don’t know which type it is though
We had Green-Veined Whites
Gatekeepers arguing along the hedge
Large and Small Whites
And then just as I was sat hoping for Small Coppers like last year and wondering whether I’d see any more Skippers along came these: Small Skippers
They’re so dinky and cute
And if I hadn’t sang praises enough for Erysimum yet… Almost every species of flutter I’ve had this year has fed off it!
It had a little sunbathe on the Lupin
And then the Coreopsis ‘early sunrise’.
Sadly I didn’t manage to get a shot of them together before they chased each other away.
