Fallow deer fawn.
Fawns are born during June or early July.
Cover such as nettles, bracken & grass also reaches heights sufficient to conceal and provide shelter for newly born fawns at this time, which is important because fawns are left unattended for much of their first few weeks of life.

A very noisy Marsh Frog.

Small Copper of Richmond Park.
Get involved with the big butterfly count which runs from the 17th July - 9th August. Over 44,000 people took part in 2014, counting almost 560,000 individual butterflies.
I've recorded entries so far from Surrey, Oxfordshire & Essex.

Purple Emperor.
Not really happy with these shots but the Butterfly is hard to find so on they go.
pixel
The Purple Emperor is a magnificent and elusive insect that is actively sought out by the many subjects of "His Majesty", as the male butterfly is affectionately known.
The male butterfly is one of the most beautiful of all of the butterflies found in the British Isles.

equivalence gosh you must be patient ... adder, wow!, I saw one once 20 years ago ... the butterfly turnout this year has been terrible though I do my best to provide wilderness, a couple of cabbage whites and I don't know what the brown ones are; I like your larva shot
