Limentis camilla   White Admiral

Limentis camilla

The sole food plant of this butterfly is supposed to be Lonicera periclymenum (Honeysuckle) but here it is on bramble. We had hoped to see a White Admiral in these woods but were surprised and delighted to count eight butterfly species which were fluttering around this one Breckland glade.
