It’s butterfly season! There’s nothing I associate more with an English Summer than wondering round a meadow as the grasshoppers buzz and the butterflies drift lazily in the heat.

UPDATE!

I managed to fit in another butterfly trip last weekend to a Berks, Bucks and Ox Wildlife Trust Reserve. I saw my first Brown Hairstreak!

    Terrific. I am looking for butterflies too. Saw a Gulf Fritillary for the first time in NYC.
