Great shots of that purple Hairstreak Trevor, but you'll have to wait a week or two to find out why I don't feel the need for any Mr greens.... :wink:

Re: Ringlet and meadow brown mating?

Yes indeed it is possible. I believe there are a number of pictures of Meadow Brown males mating with a range of species on this site. Male MB seem to have a bit of a philandering cross species reputation!

Re: Wurzel

It was fortuitous you never made it to Croydon for the glannies, very few were seen and I'm not sure any were even photographed :? .

Looks good for a female Black-tailed skimmer to me :)

Shame you didn't get a bit more brightness, that bit of blue you got looks lush without the bleaching effect of the sun :mrgreen:

Re: Bugboys mission

18th June. I had no specific species in mind today (well perhaps a Glanville but that was a seriously small needle in a huge haystack!).

Re: Bugboys mission

Wow. Just wow. Those WLH shots are awesome! Once next summer is out of the way and I've either succeeded or failed in my 50/50 mission I'm going to be going out with the express purpose of improving on existing species. Looks like I might be tapping you for sites and photo hints mate! :mrgreen: Tha...

Re: Bugboys mission

16th June, a day of season premiers. Part 2 So onto Bookham with the prospect of my first Silver Washed Fritillaries of the season and hopefully more than a fleeting glimpse of a White Admiral. Walking across the ‘plains’ from the train station numerous Skippers were present, both Large and SmEssex...
