Butterflies everywhere

A walk in the meadow yesterday was literally full of butterflies. They were flitting in and over the tall grasses . It is an insects paradise !

This green veined white was really enjoying the bramble which are festooned with flowers.

I love it in flight, you can make out its coiled proboscis.

There were meadow brown butterflies and ringlets and gate keepers as well as large numbers of skippers which I’ve really fallen in love with this year.

Along with all these butterflies there is a constant moving backdrop of shimmering dancing damselflies wherever you look.

It is so beautiful in this meadow and so unexpected so close to major roads and the new shops. Brilliant !The gatekeeper butterfly and a skipper below.

This tiny Damselfly was so tiny and delicate like a wisp of silver absolutely gorgeous.
