I managed to get up close to a butterfly yesterday. I couldn’t see it’s wing pattern but I managed to identify it by using the @savebutterflies search tool. It looks like a Small Heath which makes sense as they always keep their wings closed when at rest.

We made a homemade enclosure for our monarch caterpillars to keep them safe. We’ve had a couple of causalities and decided we would give them a better chance. Don’t know if we did it well enough but it’s pretty well the same as the ones you can buy I think. #caterpillars #monarchs #butterflies #ourbackyard #nature

I've been working on my Small Tortiseshell this evening. She now has her little fluffy body and 'teddy bear' glass eyes fixed into place. She's just waiting on a haircut and for her wings, antennas and legs to be stitched on. I still have quite a bit of work to do on her, but I've really been enjoying every minute of this one 💚

A fabulous Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary (Boloria selene). Like 4 other Fritillary species in the UK, the caterpillar of this species feeds exclusively on violets, most notably the common dog violet (Viola riviniana). No violets = none of these butterflies. The main problem is the cessation of woodland coppicing, which leaves little suitable habitat for the species and limits the ability of violets to grow. Part of my dissertation research was focussed on investigating the impacts of habitat management on violet abundances.
