Yesterday I was up to redmires reservoars to check out the place, it has been a while since I was there. But mostly I was there to pick some blueberries so I can make a good pie.
But anyway, I found a place where there were lots of butterflies but since I did not have my camera with me so it had to be today's task to photograph butterflies.
It was not the best weather today to take pictures of butterflies, it blew quite a lot, and it was blue skies and sunshine so it was difficult to get decent pictures but since I was there so I just had to try.
And the result was then also missed focus on the head that you usually want to focus on.
Another nice thing that I discovered was that the Peak District NP is in full bloom of heather, so I will try to get away to photograph the spectacle also someday, they bloom apparently only 2-3 weeks and I have missed them 2 years in a row now.
Here are some butterfly pictures but as I said no one as I been really happy with.

Peacock eye


Some kind of moth
