Butterflies and Moths Yesterday
Finished sorting out the photos from yesterday so here are some more of the various insects that we saw. In total we had 11 species of butterfly including Common Blue (pic 1), Speckled Wood (pic 2), Meadow Brown (pic 3), Comma, Green Veined White, Large and Small Skipper. Along with the butterflies we also saw plenty of day flying moths especially micros around the many meadows we searched. Along with the awesome Hummingbird Hawkmoth (picture 5 shows it's egg we located) we also saw plenty of Narrow Bordered Five Spot Burnet (pic 4), and singles of Shaded Broad Bar, Straw Dot and Common White Wave (all new for me).
