In pictures: UK butterflies (part two)
Time for the second part of our run-through of all the UK's species of butterflies using photos from the Springwatch and Summerwatch photo groups. Last week it was A-C (adonis to common blue), this time it's D-H (dark green fritillary to holly blue). Hope you'll all agree, stunning images of stunning creatures...
As I said on the last post I'd strongly recommend using Butterfly Conservation's online identifier. Type in where you saw it, its size, colour and markings and it will tell you what butterfly you spotted.
And most importantly of all, remember the Big Butterfly Count starts on 16 July. One for all the family to enjoy and help science at the same time.
Update 8 July: Turns out I got three species incorrect - the dark green fritillary, the gatekeeper and the Essex skipper. These have now all been corrected. Big thanks to all those who pointed them out.
