I thought that I would do a post on the butterflies I have slowly been identifying around our home. I will also do one on the birds, and quite possibly the flowers as well. Somewhere in between all of that will come what is going on with us and general updates etc….
So, so far I have identified the following butterflies in our garden, from yesterday’s post.
Well yesterday I finally managed to identify and get a photo of 3 more of the butterflies in our garden. They are harder to photo, chase around or generally just get them to stay still long enough to get a camera lens to focus on something that small it is hardly worth the attempt! But I have managed it with 2 of them and the 3rd I have identified at least… so here are some new ones for you… though you may need to play spot the butterfly with a couple of them! 😀
Another is the Meadow Argus which is quite pretty if a touch difficult to actually photograph and as for when it lands on an exposed patch of ground… tracking it becomes almost impossible.
Finally I have found this butterfly which is tiny but prolific in our garden. It can be no bigger than a thumbnail in size (when its wings are closed up), but makes up for it in their numbers. I’m working on what it is at the moment and will update this page when I know.
