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.
2 photos from Mike on September 13th 2015, Speckled Wood (above) and Looper caterpillar (below).
The 3 photos below were taken by Tina Smith in the area immediately adjacent to the Mayfields site late in July, 2015.
The next 7 photos were taken by Mike Ridealgh in the afternoon of 23rd July 2015.
