Common Blue

Small White (hopefully)
My butterfly identifying skills are not the best.


  1. The Common Blue is magnificent
    not sure about Small White
    Possibly Green veined White

  2. Hi Professor.

    Looks like the jury is out on the second image....I confess I am hopeless with butterflies and moths and I am not the greatest with birds either.

  3. I think there are too many black markings along the wing edge for it to be a small white, which I thought only had blackish tips and a couple of spots
    I too am no expert and it is better to tell from the underside whether my suggestion is right
    As for not being the greatest with birds I usually find several glasses of wine and sweet talk works lol!

  4. We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

  5. Thank you Around the World for including this blog in your guide.

  6. I thought it was a Green-veined White as you can see the veins on the lower wing

  7. Thanks for the comment jowan.
    Both you and the Professor think it is a Green-veined White and I think you are both probably right.
