Have you enjoyed the sunshine we've had lately? Our butterflies certainly have, and it's great to see them making a comeback after an atrocious time last year.
Our friends at Butterfly Conservation are running their Big Butterfly Count survey until 11 August, so there's still plenty of time for you to take part.
This is a silver-washed fritillary, a big orange beastie which loves to nectar on thistles and brambles, amongst other things.
This gorgeous photo was taken by Richard Revels and is part of our RSPB Images library.
stunning ! I have never seen one in the wild, sigh
