Speckled Wood Butterfly ?

By Peagreen
This Speckled Wood Butterfly was just 'passing' through my garden today just after lunch. Never seen one here beforeSmile ( hope I have ID correct) It flew around enjoying the warmth from the sun and waited for me to get my camera, landing once on the flowers , but mainly on a large terracotta pot!! Cropped and framed on picnik, hope you like itSmile

Thank you all for your c&cs on last night's upload 'Eldest and Youngest' and for your time and for visiting tonight. Much appreciatedSmile

I would lke to say thank you again to Viktorija ( Prosapia) for her UA for the above. Most unexpected but very much appreciated. SmileSmile Made up!!!!

Take care, Pauline

That's a stunner Pauline, great timing and how wonderful to see Butterflies still out and about in mid October.
