Late August Butterflies

The butterflies in the post, which I’ve just got round to processing, were taken at the end of August at Alners Gorse Butterfly Reserve.  The day was fairly warm, but fairly breezy.  There were  lots of whites about, mainly on the wing, and I got some shots of this Large White whilst it necatared on a purple flower.

A lot of Peacocks and Small Tortoiseshells were attracted to one mass of yellow flowers.  Chasing around this large clump, I also spotted a Small Copper, which I managed to get a couple of shots of, as well as a the two forsaid species.
