First trip to Chambers Farm

First trip to Chambers Farm in Lincolnshire this year. Dozens of Marsh Fritillary butterflies in the meadows and plenty of insect life, as well. It was a bit strange using the macro lens again after parking it up for the winter …. and my knees were definitely protesting at all the kneeling down and fairly screaming at the getting-up again. But, as usual, it was all worthwhile and we had a lovely day out.
Here is a small selection from the day. Clockwise from top left – Hairy Shield Bug, Marsh Fritillary, Pyrausta ostrinalis, BeeFly.

  1. I love the way you can name species; after cabbage white and monarch, every butterfly I come across (not many in NZ’s southernmost province, although we had almost-a-plague of cabbage whites this season) is simply a butterfly. (Unless it’s a moth …)
