The books tell you that the wood white (yesterday) can be easily confused with the green veined white here. They don't seem so alike to me. We've set ourselves a goal to find and photograph as many native British butterflies as we can. A tall order because we've knocked off the easiest ones and most of the rest will demand quite a bit of travelling and planning to fit in with flight times (that's butterfly flight times). But there are still quite a lot of Surrey-based species to go at.
I'm hoping that in the next couple of weeks we might be able to find an Adonis Blue and, if we're lucky, possibly even a silver-spotted skipper. Soon the season will be over and then we'll have to sit down and plan a campaign for next year.
