On the wing in early May

Not very good pictures: the butterflies didn’t want to stay still. But the woodland rides were full of them today: Lesser Marbled Fritillaries (Brenthis ino). Alongside them, coming to rest on the ground from time to time, were brightly stippled day-flying moths, Speckled Yellows (Pseudopanthera macularia), even less keen to be photographed.
