I am to be counted amongst those in the bus pass generation that is keeping a low profile in this hot weather. So I thought I would post another silver studded butterfly shot which was taken at Prees Heath, which is the only site that they can be found in the Midlands. I forgot to add this song which suits the condition of this butterfly

A fine capture David, even with the wing damage, the large buddleia where I took a lot of images last year had it's first visitors of the year this morning, a Red Admiral and a Peacock,

Fred, As a result of your comments I have added on a song which fits the condition of this butterfly. We planted a buddleia in our garden this year and so far has attracted whites but hopefully more species will come! David

Our buddleia has not had a single butterfly this summer, as far as I have observed. Here's hoping! Your image shows what can be obtained but perhaps not up here!

Ian - you are right. These butterflies only found in the East and South of England, The Great Orme, Llandudno, Wales and Prees Heath in Shropshire. Thanks Lin and Joe for your comments. David

A fine capture of this lovely, if a little 'moth eaten' butterfly, David.
I will have passed Prees Heath many times without realising there was a nature site there.
Must pay attention next time!!

Thanks Pam. I know more about music than photography. I hope EPZERS do not mind me adding on music to pictures from time to time?? David
