After a bit of a lull from the spring butterflies the sunshine brought some different ones into the garden today. My first two Large Whites and a Red Admiral :butterfly:

This little beauty appeared in my garden today. It is a Little Skipper. I thought I saw one last week but it was gone before I could manage a proper ID. this one was not so camera shy. :)

This coming week should be good for Butterflies. I am seeing plenty of Whites with a smattering of Peacocks and Small tortoiseshell. My Buddleia is in full flower and doing its best to attract them. :butterfly:
