This Painted Lady hung around for awhile in our garden, our first this year.

Great picture Bruce. I haven't had one yet.

I had the good luck to photo a Purple Hairstreak Butterfly (Quercusia quercus) near Scar Wood. The first I've ever got close to. It was a flight-worn female, but still very lively - 14th Sept.
I posted the pics over on the Calderdale Moths blog.

Great shot Bruce and a nice find. Not seen one locally all year.
