Beautiful butterflies

The small copper is one of my favourite butterflies, it's so small and fragile looking with beautiful patterning. In the past it used to be reliably seen on Corstorphine HIll in Edinburgh but is much less frequent now. So we were delighted to see two today, including this one that posed for Crafty Green Boyfriend to take its photo

 There were also fifteen large white butterflies. I recorded all these butterflies in the Big Butterfly Count which runs until 12 August.

There were also loads of hoverflies around including several pied hoverflies

Corstorphine Hill is also well known for its views over Edinburgh

Love your pictures and commentary on butterflies and other insects seen on walks. Reminds me of walks with my grandmother. She seemed to see all the little things and knew their names.
