Spring On It’s Way

Comma butterfly

March 13th 2017.  With some lovely warm spring sunshine, butterflies have been coming out of hibernation, 4 species seen in the garden today.  The comma (above) sunning itself on a foxglove leaf was very active.


One of my favorites is the brimstone, this one flew up and down the flower bed before having a quick refuel on a primula.  At the weekend we saw one go to roost under a leaf of a hebe, once you took your eyes from it it was very hard to re-find.

Adding a drop of colour both peacock and small tortoiseshell spent a few minutes warming up.
