This is a migratory butterfly which is unable to hibernate or survive the British winter. They arrive here from April onwards and in most years are commonest in the south, but every few years there is a very large influx, and then they may be seen throughout the British Isles in all habitats up to Shetland. This picture was taken in my back garden, which shows you do not have to go far to get interesting shots. A few buddleia bushes will attract many types of butterflies.
