So many butterflies at Queendown Warren in Kent on a warm Bank Holiday Monday, they spun before my eyes as I fell asleep.
Marjoram, knapweed and harebells at Queensdown Warren. A good source of nectar for butterflies
Hundreds of Brown Argus were laying eggs yesterday
Silver spotted skippers were harder to spot but this one was obliging.
The eye popping Adonis Blue is easier to see.
My favourite butterfly, a Small Copper, the only one I have seen this year.
It is easy to miss this tiny orchid while enjoying the butterflies but Autumn Ladies Tresses is one of the speciality plants of the site.
