It was a nice warm sunny day, high of 28. I went out south of London to see if I can spot the Dickcissel. Took more pictures of wild flowers. There were lots of barn swallows flying around and also saw Killdeers, Song Sparrows, American Goldfinch, and a few Turkey Vultures. I did finally see the Dickcissel on the wire but couldn't get any photos.

I saw a couple of butterflies fluttering in the field. They were far away from me but I tried snapping some photos anyway. It was difficult as they were on the move. This one landed for a few seconds, I took the photo but I think I got it starting to fly again so a little blurry. I had no idea what kind they were because of the distance. By narrowing it down by the pattern and colour, it looks to be a Black Swallowtail!
The teasel is starting to show some purple.
