Some More Newark Butterflies

It is the season of the white, the red admiral and the small tortoiseshell. A few peacocks seem to have reemerged, but as you can see, others have met a sadder end.

The buddleia by Millgate bridge is the prime patch of butterfly real estate at the momen. Its second flowering has been rich, and any sunny day sees it well tenanted with flutterers watching the kids jump off the bridge and magically avoid getting their backsides speared by a sunken shopping trolley.

Mobile phone camera still not performing...

...but I rathe like this edge on shot of a red admiral

Small tortoiseshell

But, on still objects against solid backgrounds it doesn't do too badly. This is a dead peacock.
