Big Butterfly Count

I found a sunny spot on Saturday and settled down to do my Big Butterfly Count.

Results were:
  • Common Blue - 1
  • Gatekeeper - 4
  • Red Admiral - 2
  • Speckled Wood - 1
  • Large White - 1
Notice how having your camera on the wrong setting makes even a butterfly sitting still on a leaf in the sunshine out of focus...



The Red Admiral is mid-flight, hence even more blurred around the edges!

Doing the Big Butterfly Count is really easy. All you need is a sunny spot and 15 minutes to sit and watch. More details are on the Big Butterfly Count website.
