Butterflies This Week

Here are the species of butterfly I have observed at the beginning of this week.
It was fortunate that I went out at the beginning, as the rest of the week it hasn't stopped raining. I hope the weather gets better soon as this wet weather will not help the next group of butterflies that should emerged at the beginning of July.

The Meadow Brown is always a little weary when arriving in the Spring. 
One will rarely find it with wings open at this stage.

The Common Blue Butterfly.
This first one below is a female.

Male Common Blue

Small Heath Butterfly

This rather well worn species below is a Common Blue.

Dingy Skipper.

The dragonflies are active, but I am not seeing so many as yet this year.

Some in flight images.

Not a clear image, don't quite know what was happening here below
