Wow! A sunny day!

A brief respite from the dreadful summer's weather during the weekend provided the opportunity for walking and canoeing around Elton and helped to bring out a few more insects.

Small Tortoiseshell (Aglais urticae) on Prickly Sow-thistle (Sonchus asper), an excellent food source for insects.

Dark Bush-cricket(Pholidoptera griseoaptera). Female.

This butterfly was feeding on our "Great Orme": a hebe and possibly the finest plant in the garden for attracting insects.
Peacock (Inachis io)

Nikon CP995.
