Hi nature enthusiasts,
Today the Large Blue sightings continued in good numbers with an impressive 29 sightings! There were a variety of moths some which looked to have weathered storm while other newly emerged specimens! It looks like when the sun came out last night the Large Blues were busy as there was a large number of egg laying females this morning!
Here are some of the Large Blues I captured today!
I was treated to a bonanza of butterflies today!
The first Gatekeepers of the season emerged today favoring the brambles!
I was treated to both Large and Small Skippers!
There were numerous Large Whites out today also! Truly Large in comparison to the Large Blue!
Ringlets, Small Tortoiseshells, Painted Ladies, Small Heaths, Marbled Whites and Meadow Browns! Slowly more and more butterflies are being added into the mix!
I finally managed to grab a picture of the pesky Green Woodpecker- a productive day!
I also have some more moths ready for I.D if anyone would like to message in suggestions!
Come to Collard to enjoy the Large Blues continuing progress!
