Cows, Spiders and Butterflies day today :-)

 We went to Durlston Country Park today, beautiful sunny day and it is now the beginning of the wildflower meadow season, the Cowslips and Early Spider orchids first on the scene.  

 Can you spot the butterfly?

There was a few of these Speckled Wood butterflies today, I think they must have been the males because they appear to be fighting with each other.

That field of Cowslips looks stunning.

Not seen a Speckled Wood yet Lyn.
Always love your flower images.

It took a while to spot the butterfly in that first image, Linda - had to do the double-click to find it!

Wonderful images, as always. I don't think I've ever seen a Bee Orchid.

My best wishes - - - Richard
