Butterflies etc.

Occasionally we get interesting photos (especially from Mike Ridealgh and Pam Brown) of butterflies, caterpillars and insects on the Mayfields site.  We thought putting some of these together on a page might be helpful to site users, so will add some from time to time.

Some shots from 17th August 2017 by Adam Ridgeon-Cousins.
