not long enough

I didn’t spot the long wispy bits in the photos, but they gave it the name 👍

Can see them now in photos 👍

every day’s still a school day 😁

For several years I've participated in the Big Butterfly Count but I either missed it this year or CV19 put paid to it. Nice to identify them and learn a few names.

Seen fewer than 10 the whole year :frowny:
Last year over the fields where I walk the dog there were masses of all types of butterflies in the meadows and hedgerows. There seem to be far fewer this year.

Sussex is a great place for butterflies with migrants like these Long-tailed Blues being blown over from the continent.

A fantastic year in kent, I was a budding entomologist as a kid, I can't remember their names now, very frustrating but nice to see them again anyway. This thread has cheered me up AnnB, thank you, please post more often(y) (y)
