Small Tortoiseshell bnm9177jhp 
 Butterfly small tortoiseshell colourful rear view blue chevrons buddleia feeding Scotland August summer photograph as they feed and fly eratically between different buddleia bushes and they hardly settle and are moving all the time so awkward to photograph. So far I have counted only a pair of them on my several buddleaias and these are the second brood of the year as the first appear much earlier in the summer. Numbers overall are better this year, 2017, although still down on 20 years ago when 100plus was not unusual. So far this year I have counted over 50 at one time, mainly Peacocks and Red Admirals with a couple of Small Tortoiseshells and one Dark Green Fritillary but some good sunny spells seems to have got them active. One surprise was to find a Golden Ringed Dragonfly hanging from a buddleia early in the morning, no movement of any kind while I photographed it but it had gone 10 mins later when I came out again.
