Foxley Wood provided something for everyone yesterday – my first (second and third) butterfly spot of the year, some sunshine for Mark and many muddy puddles (and the odd stick) for Freya.
I was so excited to see butterflies again. As well as the comma we also saw a peacock and lots of very vibrant brimstones, which looked like they were glowing they were so bright (not a single one would stop for a photo).
Luckily this beetle was happy to pose.
Best afternoon ever!
I hope you’ve all had a fun week. To see what other people have submitted to the fantastic My Sunday Photo link up please click on the camera below.
Also, please pop back tomorrow when the award winning author Jane Davis takes part in my Behind The Book series.
While I’ve seen some butterflies about this week, there definitely haven’t been as many – so I thought I’d cheer myself up by remembering a few of the recent ones we have spotted.
I’m still sad I didn’t get to see a swallowtail this year but it gives me something to look forward to next year.
I hope you’ve all had a great week.

We went on an adventure to the RSPB’s Buckenham Marshes, which is a new one for us – although it’s just down the road from one of my favourites, Strumpshaw Fen.
It’s a short walk to the “wildlife watchpoint” and we spent quite a while there (as we were the only ones, it didn’t matter if Freya was a bit loud). After our first visit to Strumpshaw we put together a little nature bag for her with things such as a magnifying glass, mini insect and bird guides and some children’s binoculars.
While she enjoyed using them, I was snapping away…
This feels like ‘the one that got away’. If only it was in focus!
