Kids and some adults riding up with the neighbouring farmer in York, during harvesting over the weekend, before rain stopped play

They're also extremely "friendly", I've gotten close enough to pat them more than once, the trick is looking like you might have dinner.

Yes, they are almost domesticated with all the humans around them all the time. I probably wouldn't want to approach them during the rut. 🤣

The Pike (Esox lucius) is a great photo.
Thank you! The juvenile pikes and mid sized perch are my favourites to photograph. The pikes because they just try to hide by staying completely still, while the perch is more curious or just not bothered. Although there are not a lot of other species to chose from here, apart from the schools of small roach this is pretty much all the larger creatures we regularly see:

The butterfly looks like a swallowtail, but not the British species that now lives only in the Norfolk broads. As @Gavin3171 is in Essex, it could be a visitor from Europe. It looks similar to the Citrus Swallowtail, but that one is American.
