Aug2013 312 Maniola tithonus - Gatekeepers  on Senecio jacobaea - Ragwort
I'm missing these Gatekeepers now they have gone. They were there on this ragwort just outside our front door everyday to greet us in the mornings. They are known as the friendliest butterflies in Britain which is certainly what I found them to be though they seemed to like to tease me sometimes with my camera.
