Speckled Wood in hiding.

Shield bug Graphosoma italicum.

Possibly a Meadow Brown but not absolutely sure.

Scarce Copper female.

  1. Hello Diane,
    I am really impressed with the quality of your photos, have you a new camera?
    Your first butterfly is gorgeous, it is the Purple Emperor; the wings shine purple when opened.
    I love photo n°2, like a peeping through a hole to spy on the it!!
    And the bumblebee on the sedum is also beautiful, and... well the are all great!! LOL!
    Keep well and enjoy your day :)

    1. Thanks Noushka for your kind comment, no same Nikon 3200 as I have been using for several years now. Just lucky sometimes :) Thanks for the identification, once you said what it was, I looked in my book and wondered why I had not been able to identify it!!! Hope all is well have a good weekend, hugs Diane
