The lovely habbo, which looks a lot nicer than it smells!
Ox-eye Daisies are called Dog Daisies on the continent, and for good reason because they don't half stink of dog poo!!
Glanville Fritillaries love 'em though!
This one is a male
The larger, paler, female.

This lovely 'brand new' individual is an aberration, having reduced markings on the upper wings. There are several named aberrations in this species, I haven't been able to find out which this is though.
A new plant for me, again probably just overlooked it before.
View to the west along Sand Point with the rare Cheddar Pink in the centre.
In the distance is the coastline of Wales and the island of Flat Holm
Cheddar Pink looking very different to last year when it flowered very early and was therefore standing alone. Here it is surrounded by other wild flowers and looking very pretty. It also smells exquisite! It's a tiny little olfactory oasis amid the sea of Dog poo daisies!

There were lots of Bee Orchids in flower on the South facing slopes.
The little island in the distance in this photo is Steep Holm.
