Sunshine Spells Butterflies

 small tortoiseshell

I’m loving this sunny warm weather. Its doing the chickens good, the garden is coming alive bursting with fresh spring colour, buds are appearing on deciduous shrubs and the butterflies are flying again.

Last Sunday was particularly warm. We have a large patch of overgrown nettles which were attracting lots of fresh Small Tortoiseshell butterflies. I have not managed to get a photo of a Brimstone in focus, wow they are fast.

Roll on summer!

  1. Wonderful picture – I love butterflies but haven’t seen many about yet. Hopefully will see a few more now it’s warming up. Ah, isn’t Spring great….
