Female in pristine condition.
No interactions present.
Following the cold winter, I would have thought that butterflies would be emerging late. This seems early to me and I cannot remember seeing them this early before.
I'd agree this is an unusually early sighting, the earliest I've ever recorded it is 25 April. I think the recent warmer sunshine will have started speeding things up again.
