Today, readers, you are in for a treat! When the cool weather sets in and the Large Blues hide away for the day I can take the opportunity to share some incredible photographs that visitors to Collard Hill have recently taken. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves:
Thanks to those that sent those fab pictures in! Lastly, anyone able to confirm the species in the photo below? We believe it’s probably a Large Skipper but the abdomen looks like it could be too wide to be a Large Skipper… thoughts? *EDIT- It is indeed a Large Skipper female!*
I look forward to the break in clouds forecast this weekend… and, of course, learning lots about the beautiful wildflowers we have at Collard Hill it being National Meadows Day Saturday!
See you soon,
Gabrielle, Volunteer Large Blue ranger
