Very lucky to have that selection of butterflies. Looks like Queen of Spain Fritillary, Swallowtail, Purple Emperor or White Admiral. Where in the world are they?  

In fact name them all please!   The White - a Wood White?

Love the deep colours, was that early morning?

Just before 09:00, but the Sun was just breaking through the early morning clag, so most of them were taken with flat lighting, I think the G-v White had a bit of direct sun.

Morning - busy week !  I think they go as follows:

Southern White Admiral


Queen of Spain fritillary

Map (these butterflies are really curious - i think these are 2nd or possibly 3rd generation but i have never seen so many together at once).


Black veined white

Large skipper

Sooty copper

Map (underside - which gives them their name) - landed on my glove !

And yes, the elusive wood white 


Hummingbird hawk

Common blue

Weavers (AKA violet) fritillary

Southern white admiral again - underside v. similar to Purple Emperor and Lesser Purple Emperor (which we also have !).

I have (so) many more butterfly pics (of varying quality it has to be said) - maybe I'll dig out some of the rarer stuff and post it - if you'd like ? !!!!
