We love exploring the nature reserve with the children and spotting butterflies. It always amazes me how furry they are – I usually don't really notice when I look at them – it's not until I see the photos later that I realise quite how soft they are!
The Butterfly Conservation website is a great resource for easily identifying species, like this Common Blue. http://butterfly-conservation.org/50/identify-a-butterfly.html
