Hadspen Poppies

I cannot resist a field of bright red poppies. These were in a field above Hadspen near Castle Cary in Somerset.

This field of poppies had some great butterflies including Green-veined Whites (Pieris nap),
Marbled Whites (Melanargia calathea) and Ringlets (Aphantopus hyperantus).  It was particularly great seeing the Marbled Whites in a normal farm field rather than a nature reserve.
