Butterfly Spotting in the English Countryside

We arrived in England this morning and, as we felt rather bedraggled, thought that a bit of fresh air would help us feel a little less jet lagged.

The weather was a welcome change from the constant air conditioning of airports and planes. Feeling the sun on bare skin warmed us right through.

This walk was not just a gentle meander, but a walk with a purpose. We were taking part in the Big Butterfly Count. This is a great project aimed at taking a survey of the butterfly population.

Although many of the subjects were too fluttery for my dozy eyes and tired shutter fingers, I did manage to snap a few of these precious little insects.

And while out and about I couldn't help but feel a little Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall gathering some blackberries from the 'wild larder'.

Those of you that are in the U.K. and have joined in the Big Butterfly Count, I would love to hear which sorts you found.

Take care
