I was just telling Dave the other day that I hadn't yet seen many butterflies this year. And then I took Olga to Wormwood Scrubs on Thursday, and we saw quite a few! This small tortoiseshell caught my eye, sitting with its wings spread on a blackberry bush...
And not far away was this comma, also on a blackberry.
In fact, the blackberries seemed very popular with butterflies, like this large skipper.
This meadow brown, however, kept to the grass.
And here's a gratuitous ladybug, just because!
