Speckled Wood

The Speckled Wood butterfly is very active in the woodland areas that I walk.
A species that perhaps due to its common nature is taken for granted, but on close inspection has very colourful extensive markings albeit of a brown base.

  2. I've always been intrigued by these little beauties, especially the way they seem to just disappear when you're trying to follow their flight through dappled light.

  7. This is a beauty Roy. It really posed for you also. It would not be common over here. Thanks so much for coming to my rescue with my camera setting problems, I appreciate your help and advice on my camera. I am going to try the new setting right away.

  8. We get a lot of speckled woods in this area too though with all the rain we've had they've been more notable for their absence most of the time.
