Butterflies & Moths.

Okay I'm certainly no Butterfly or Moth expert, infact I know very little about them but when there's not a bird to digiscope and I see an opportunity to get a decent photo I'll always have a go. I managed to get a few Butterfly photos recently including a Moth species that I had never seen before, okay when I say I've never seen one before I have seen them in Larva form near Hambleden Lock, Berks a few years ago but not in Adult form. The species being The Cinnabar (Tyria jacobaeae) a rather attractive black and red moth, these photos were taken in a garden in Henley on Thames, Oxon.

The Photos of the male Peacocks were taken early morning in Aston, Berks in a private garden, I noticed 4 together which included 3 males and a female, all rather worn.
