Female Meadow Brown on Common Spotted Orchid
Some Butterflies in the sunshine which has finally arrived. Marbled Whites and Meadow Brown at YWT Wharram Quarry and Small-Pearl Bordered Fritillary at YWT Fen Bog. Wharram quarry alive with butterflies, orchids and wild flowers at this time of year. Shame about the farmer outside the reserve mowing all the roadside verges! Why oh why........
