I seem to have forgotten to post this photograph of a British butterfly to go with the other two I have posted before. The picture is that of a common blue butterfly. The males are bluish in colour but the females have varying amounts of blue.
Seems like a good way to remember the summer gone by and the dreary winters yet to come!
I came across this meadow brown butterfly basking in the sunlight earlier this week. As such, these butterflies are nervous and don’t allow you to come close. This one, however, let me get to within a foot before deciding I could be a threat!
A small tortoiseshell butterfly in South Cambridgeshire. The most common of British butterflies (so nothing special there), except for the thrill of being able to get so close to this beautiful insect. Click on picture to view large size.
