We are fortunate to observe several really colourful Butterfly species in UK.
This is likely to be one of the last butterfly posts of the year.
A lot of fuss is made about the Purple Emperor, but surely there is no more colourful species than the Peacock. Dependent on the available light you also get a variation in colouring.
The other day I was complaining that I had not seen many Common Blue Butterflies about.
In the last week they have suddenly put in an appearance, which is better late than never.
