More butterflies

I observed 5 different types of butterfly in the garden over the last few days, meadow brown, gate keeper, speckled wood small white and large white. There were at least two meadow brown and at least 2 gate keepers. the gate keeper is very similar to the meadow brown, but the former has small white spots on the lower wing.

You were lucky to get a pic of the speckled wood... the ones in my garden fly off when I get anywhere near them! However, I did manage to photograph a Brimstone at rest today (first time I've managed to catch one of those before it flew off!). Have you had any Painted Lady's yet?
