Decline in Butterflies
Having photographed butterflies over many years, I have noticed a massive decline in them during last 4 years, due to the very wet and cold summers of late.
There's nothing better than to see them fluttering by on a summers day,
if any of our readers of all ages (young and old) spot any, why not take a photograph of them and send it in. If you are none to sure of the species perhaps we can identify it, it doesn't have to be picture perfect as any picture is a record.
It would be of interest to see how many "Neath Guardian" readers can spot - here's a few I have taken in the last 2 weeks.
Their names have been added - so if you see any you can check with those below.
A ... Peacock
B ... Comma
C ... Orange tip
D ... Green veined white
E ... Orange tip
F ... Green Veined white
