Ringlet Butterfly

Ringlet butterfly (Aphantopus hyperantus) feeding on a buttercup flower, quickly rotating its position to get the nectar from every petal, and only showing the full identifying pattern of its underwings for a fraction of a second.

  1. Hi Jessica I saw a humming bird hawk moth near the privet hedge at the cricket pitch yesterday. I saw on Facebook that they seem to being seen around the village quite a bit. Yvonne

    • How lovely. There are more around this year if Facebook is anything to go by. I used to see them feeding on my Buddleia but since I cut the bush down to four foot to meet with the rules, it hasn’t flowered. I’ll keep looking for one to photograph though.
