"If you go down to the woods today....." - 23rd July 2014

Peacock Butterfly

Something different today with Ian and myself heading out to Ryton Woods in search of Butterflies. This is something that I know little about and struggle to identify, so a steep learning curve! It is amazing how fast these creatures move making it difficult for me to lock on! If I have mis-identified any or have put a (?) name, I am willing to receive assistance! It was a very relaxing morning and one I hope to repeat fairly soon. Next time, though, I will take along a few teddy bears in order to fulfil requirements to host a special picnic!
