Picture of peacock butterflies on a buddleia flower in Yorkshire.
This summer has been pretty miserable, with damp and overcast skies on many days and today it started out bright and sunny at least until it rained.
There was at least in my day one rather nice high point, I was visiting a catholic church a little way outside Leeds and as I was leaving I noticed in the garden there was a buddleia with several peacock butterflies flying around it.
I mentioned this later to someone I was chatting with and he said that so far this year he had yet to notice any butterflies on the buddleia in his garden. I missed the Big Butterfly Count this year having only rarely seen the odd one here and there.
I took the above photograph of these peacock butterflies this afternoon.
