Just a short walk to a wild area of undergrowth near the airfield today.



Lots of butterflies about. Saw at least 5 species, but the only one that would sit still long enough to get a shot was the tortoiseshell.

Right at the end, I saw this beastie. I’m reliably informed (thanks Shane) that it’s a 6 spot Burnet – a type of moth.
