Ringlet Butterfly

Before the weather turned nasty I walked Fizz and I got these shots of a Ringlet. This Butterfly is a little bit faded and worn but probably the best we can hope for now. Flight time for these Butterflies is mid June until the beginning of August. Apart from the short time when they are an egg they spend most of the year as a caterpillar. From around about now until next June they will be crawling around on a variety of grasses being larvae and of course this one hibernates as a caterpillar.

  1. I have visited your blog very often and always enjoy reading what you have to say and your photographs are marvellous. I have only been to the Forest of Dean a couple of times and loved it there very much. Thank-you for visiting my blog

    1. Thanks Clare 🙂 Suffolk looks quite beautiful. I have only visited once when for two weeks we had a little cottage just outside of Minsmere and I spent most of that time bird watching. Nice memories.
