As a change from flowers and places of interest I have decided to share a few photos of butterflies taken in recent weeks.  One is a speckled wood in woodland at Acorn Bank.  The others were taken closer to home.  A wall butterfly on a wall, which has featured in at least one other post – the wall, not the butterfly!

Others near a similar wall were a painted lady and a small tortoiseshell.

I have also seen red admiral butterflies and at least one peacock butterfly as well as the usual white butterflies.
