Brittany Butterflies

We were hoping for a lot more species and certainly numbers of butterflies during our recent holiday in Brittany. The weather was as in England, cool, blustery and showery so it was no surprise that butterflies were thin on the ground. We did manage two new species for us - the Map, here in its second brood form (have yet to work out  the evolutionary advantage of two different forms during the year) and the Grayling, beautifully disguised on lichen-covered rocks. We also photographed very pristine Walls, a very tatty Silver-washed Fritillary, Holly Blue, Common Blue and Clouded Yellow.
