Numbers of this butterfly are said to be declining rapidly in the UK. Certainly there were few about before September this year but the late brood seems to be making up for the earlier shortfall! I have literally dozens on the flowers in my Lincolnshire UK garden

A sudden huge spike in numbers early Sept here in mid-Finland. They are very plentiful around my mint, which is in flower.
