Basking in the Autumn Sun

It's the hottest October day for years today and it really is hot out there. This lovely speckled wood butterfly was basking in the dappled light in the wooded area near Musselburgh Lagoons today

while this lovely furry looking caterpillar was wandering round nearby - someone from the Facebook Group of Edinburgh Natural History Society identified this as the caterpillar of the ruby tiger moth.

for Nature Notes.
