Bookham Common

A hot, sunny day, +29° C. Been to Bookham.
Lots of insects around, but nothing interesting 😦
Purple Emperors (Apatura iris) are not uncommon, but fly high up in the tree crowns. I guess I’ll have to come there very early in the morning to get a shot of these. Plenty of Purple Hairstreaks (Quercusia quercus).

A phenomenally boring visit to a usually great place!
