Ringlet butterfly (Aphantopus hyperantus)
Seen here on reeds besides a pond, the Ringlet breeds in damp, but not waterlogged, places. The largest colonies are to be found in woodland rides and glades where the underlying vegetation is left to grow tall and lush, but they may also breed amongst scrubby grassland and along overgrown hedgerows and verges. They are however, generally absent from open dry grassland. Numbers vary from year to year but in general are higher after wet seasons, such as the summer of 2008 has been. The Ringlet is one of the few butterflies which will fly in very overcast conditions and it may even venture forth during light showers.
