As the summer goes on the grasses have turned brown and as it has been so dry everywhere it is dusty under foot but among the grasses, colorful flowers poke through the brown.
The cinnabar moth caterpillars have hatched and their distinctive orange and black strips make them an easy spot. They are only found on their host plant the Ragwort. The moth is also recognisable due to its bright red spots and stripes on the grey-black front wings, their rear wings are scarlet with charcoal edging. The moth can be found in open fields and gardens from May to August.
This Wood Pigeon decided to come off his branch and wander around on the ground amongst the flowers and reminded me of Flower power and peace protesters around the time of Vietnam War. So perhaps he was doing a peaceful anti-Trump visit to the UK one bird protest.
