.....in fact it's the only time I've ever seen one so I had to look it up. It is a Comma flutterby and while they are not endangered, they are not often seen so I feel doubly priviledged to have got some photographs :o)
Isn't he/she just so beautiful?
I am now on holiday and the weather is horrible, but I have never let it stop me enjoying myself before so why change the habits of a lifteime. Tomorrow I am off to Trentabank Reservoir in the Macclesfield Forest to see the heronry there and hopefully get some photographs :o)
