elusive butterflies

It’s muggy today as I wander through the forest. There are Peacock, Brimstone and Red Admiral butterflies about but they are all on the small side and flit nervously about tantalizing me. Finally I have to make do with a small brown Speckled Wood butterfly which did oblige by taking a short break. There are many small white, yellow, and purple wildflowers to be seen but not the sort that attract butterflies it would seem. It is still rather early for mushroom picking but I did come across this champignon-like mushroom, which I suspect, was poisonous.
