I have been getting Brimstones popping by for the last few weeks but today I was blessed with a Holly Blue. :butterfly: :)

Good news, Jacksparrow.
Haven't seen a single one yet but always on the lookout.

A good Butterfly day today. More Holly Blues and a Brimstone or two followed by the first sighting this year of Orange Tips. :)

Broke my butterfly duck yesterday and forgot to report :rolleyes: :shake: - first one of this year was an orange-tip :drumroll:.
I was reminded that I forgot by the fact that today another one came by :clap:. This one was also white and the same size but the rain had washed its orange tips off.

The females don't have the orange tips to their wings. :)
