Dave says: “Season starting to wind down now for the Marsh Frits with just a few seen, although this girl seemed quite fresh and egg laden. Also next year’s generation is on the way with this egg batch on the devils bit scabious”.

Thanks to Dave for this reminder that butterflies exist in more than their adult forms. How about you brilliant photographers sending us a few more photos of caterpillars and chrysalises?
