Butterflies seen recently

Posted Sat 25 August 2018 in garden

These are the butterflies seen during August. I am no expert on identifying them so I hope I have got the right names.

Comma butterfly

This was on a Geum 'Lady Stratheden'. Seen on the 1st of August.

Cabbage white butterfly

I'm not sure if this is a Large White or a Small White. It is on a Ligularia flower. Seen on the 18th August.

Not sure what this is, it may be a Small Copper. Seen on the 25th August.

Speckled wood on Rudbeckia

I believe this is a Speckled Wood. They are quite variable in colour, and the sunlight is reflecting yellow onto and maybe through the wings to some extent. Also on the 25th August.

Peacock butterfly

A Peacock butterfly was also seen, but its picture came out blurred, so not shown here. I expect there will be one to show in September.
