Yellow Butterflies

Yes (The edge profile ) a good indicator on this fast flighty butterfly which also can be seen quite early in spring. There are few British Species that are Yellow and the only one similar but unlikely to be confused is the Clouded Yellow which like the Painted Lady tends to get blown in from the Continent en masse every 5 years or so

Brimstone

I followed the Brimstone around the garden yesterday, just as I followed another on a chilly, but sunny, spring day earlier in the year. Lovely to witness both an early -and a late- seasonal appearance! Thanks again WLR!
