I read earlier on today that in amongst all this terrible weather, we have had the biggest influx of painted lady butterflies in the UK since 2009, with over ten times the normal number of the species being reported.
I know little of the veracity of these claims, but I do know that I don't see too many round here, and certainly have never seen any at work. So to see two today was quite surprising.
The one that I managed to snap took a long time to settle down, but I got the shot eventually.
