Just when you thought it was safe to read my blog again and you had seen the last of them,
"THE BUTTERFLIES ARE BACK'
A walk through the local woodland nature reserve revealed that there are still some butterfly species on the wing and in good numbers. Nothing out of the ordinary was found and species such as Brimstone, Comma, Large White, Small White, Speckled Wood and Green-veined White were observed.

I said earlier "nothing out of the ordinary", but this one below is quite late to be still around.
A very washed out Holly Blue, one of the 'Summer Brood' that is at the end of its flight time.
For those that are interested about cameras, the image below was taken using the equipment listed (effectively a full frame mirrorless camera and 600mm lens) and cropped approx 85% to show the detail obtained.
