butterflies in Norfolk in summer 2017
A few fluttering beauties today... I'm particularly excited to look up the butterflies I spot this summer in my book. Theses are small skippers I think, the males have a black line or sex-brand.

 Above, I think a ringlet and below, a gatekeeper.

 Well, my conclusion is 'small white' but I remain unconvinced.

Have you ever seen a blue one? I haven't but would love to. There was a beautiful black and white butterfly which flew tantalisingly close, then scarpered before landing so alas, no picture or identification. Though the fact remains I get really shrieky when they fly too close towards me, it's most unsettling.

  1. We often get Holly Blue butterflies on the Buddlea but the Small Blue is v rare I think!

    My favourite is the Monarch/Milk Weed although I do like to see the Swallowtails though I've only seen those in the wild in Croatia!
