Hi, I have to go into town today so activity will be low. I thought before I left I would just look at yesterday’s pictures and see if there was anything else worth posting.
While I was photographing my Dock Bug nymph I was being pestered by newly emerged Speckled Wood Butterflies. I didn’t really want to photograph them because I have just posted the Speckled Wood but they were very insistent.
Anyway here’s the thing, I didn’t look at these picture yesterday because I was busy. Today I have found hidden amongst the butterflies a whole bunch of pictures of the nymph that should have been included in yesterday’s post.
Pesky, troublesome butterflies!
Here are it’s shadows. I hope that you like them as much as I do.

The 3rd image is my favourite. It looks as though the butterfly on a cliff top waiting to jump off – but there goes my imagination I suspect.
I on’t know if you’ve mentioned it before but what camera do you use and what lens. Your photos are so good and close up.
I am glad they insisted on being photographed. They are very beautiful.
You can never have too many speckled woods 🙂
Lovely. I didn’t know butterflies could be bothersome. I like it when they are around and land on me. I don’t see many of them anymore.
I think I am going to enjoy your blog 🙂
