Speckled Wood butterfly

We just saw this butterfly on the buddlea in our garden. It was feeding on the nectar from the flowers of the bush I think.

It seems appropriate to have a name with wood in it as our garden is very woody now. I guess we will have to try and cut things back a bit because it’s very overgrown, but I’m glad we have made room for nature, and by planting trees we are helping reduce our carbon footprint.
