Pictures today are smaller than usual because there are more of them.
One of the gems of Walltown, a Bee Orchid. This is the first year I have seen them there but I found at least 4 plants in different spots and it's awash with other orchids so maybe I've just not noticed them before.
Hawksbeard, insects seeme to be drawn to these open bright yellow flowers.
Latticed Heath Moth, so striking you might mistake it for a butterfly
Ringlet Butterfly, I counted 75 of these on this ne visit to the site
Small Heath Butterfly
Small Skipper butterfly
Small Skipper butterfly, although they are as fast as all the other butterflies they don't seem to mind you getting quite close to them for photographs and generally chose a nice spot to pose.
St John's Wort
Flower of the Twayblade Orchid, something you could easily pass by and not notice, but they're worth a second look
Twayblade orchid blends so well with the surrounding grasses.
