Most likely a Holly Blue. I got a photo of one today. Will put it on later if it's any good
I really must try and find a Holly Blue this year, the last time I saw one was 2013.
Went back without the dog today for a photo of a Green Hairstreak, they're just so stunning in the sunlight.
Lovely Green Hairstreak. Had a look for one at my site today but no sign. I must admit that I usually see one much later in the season.
Saw this little beauty today when out with the dog.

these were just taken with my little point and click camera! A Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30
I have one of those, too! Really good handy camera.
I have the TZ60, I upgraded it from the TZ9 a couple of years ago. I love the Panasonic point & shoot cameras.:001_smile:
Taken last Summer.
Holly Blue in the garden today
I finally caught up with a Holly Blue too on Wednesday, having not seen one since 2013 prior to that.
Just to make you really jealous! A pair of Duke of Burgundy.
Taken last week in Cumbria.
I so love to see the butterflies in the garden on the flowers. Unfortunately I am never quick enough to get a picture of them so thank you for posting these lovely photos for me to see.
I better go and have a look for some. Going to be difficult this weekend though!
Burrowzig, that's just showing off!
Great photo - well captured.
Finally a pic of a Brimstone, doing a pretty good impression of a leaf
no pic yet but Mint Moth spotted in the garden. I have purloined some of my sister's mint bush to try and entice them out of the oregano (which I love to eat) and into the mint (which I don't).
Mint moth goes on the flower and seed heads, you can still eat the leaves. Keep the mint in a pot, or it'll run everywhere!
Painted Lady today. I don't think I have seen one consciously before. Very lovely, and stuffing itself on a leisure centre hebe bush.
The mint moth sunbathing
Feasting on thyme
And a summer Speckled Wood
I saw my first small skipper the other day. Only in passing,
With the old dog I don't think I'll be doing much spotting this year
Is he getting too old to go very far then? Maybe you just need to find somewhere to sit and let them all come to you? (I haven't seen a skipper at all yet.)
