A Beautiful Moth

Look what we found today while taking our dog for a walk up the lane.
A 'Granny's Cloak' moth.
Quite startling with those big 'eye' markings.
It was on the road, so after taking the photo, I moved it over to the grassy footpath.

Cheerio for now,

Hello again,
today we have some pretty butterflies to look at.
The first one is a very common butterfly - the 'Monarch' or 'Wanderer'

A 'Meadow Argus' . It is also known as 'Albin's Hampstead Eye in the United Kingdom, where it has occurred only as an accidental import.

And lastly, a 'White line blue' butterfly.
It is always a pleasure to see butterflies visiting my garden.
Cheerio for now,
