I love the last one, it goes really well against the flower backdrop, is it a buddelia? probably spelt wrong.

Agree about pinning. At school we had several of those Victorian collection drawers and some of the stuff pinned out is now extinct. I guess it was similar for birds egg collecting.

When I get a garden a nettle patch will be a prerequisit for the various butterlies. As will a hedge with interspersed buckthorn.

These photographs of butterflies are so beautiful. Thank you for putting them here I don’t think I have seen these before and so I’m glad I have a nettle patch even if it’s only for cabbage white’s.

Sadly cabbage whites feed on . . . cabbages.

Nettles are the larval food plant for Red Admirals, Peacocks, Tortoiseshells and several others.
