A short walk through the butterfly Meadow late on Wednesday evening as the sun began to set. The butterflies were all at rest, a few could be disturbed by walking off the path and into the flowery meadow. In poor light the easiest to make out were a couple of Common Blues. Meadow Brown were also prompted to fly for a brief time but soon settled back into the grass and flowers. Every footstep caused a panic among the many Grasshoppers and Crickets as they sprang clear of danger.
Some like this Long Winged Conehead could be caught and would even rest on the hand while a photograph was taken.
