There are also a good few more butterflies in the area, like: Ringlets, Orange tips and Meadow browns. So if you are ever having a summer afternoon walk in the Corris – Aberllefenni region; keep your eyes open, you never know which butterflies you’ll see.

If you’d like hard copies of these & other pictures – butterfly prints & posters will be available soon from Poster’s Wales. To find out more about British butterflies try the Butterfly Conservation website.
