butterfly bonanza

the brilliant sunshine of today brought forth an array of butterflies,some even alighted long enough for me to capture them on camera,I hope you enjoy them too...

the Comma butterfly,readily identified by it's ragged wing margins and the white comma on the underside

this pretty little butterfly is the Holly Blue

the Brimstone with hooked wingtips,may live for about a year

the ever beautiful Peacock

I added this one as she was clearly taking off as I tried to capture her,a Small White I think

aha,a Violet Ground Beetle has manged to sneak in


a Meadow Grasshopper .I sat on something extremely spikey in order to get this shot but worth it I think; they may be even trickier to get up close to than butterflies..
