First of the trio of butterflies today is the Green-veined White.
A common and widely distributed species.
There are several species of white butterflies, but this one is easily identified once you have observed the underside of the wings which reveal the green veins.
The first of the female Brimstone that I have seen this year.
Both of these are females which are a pale green as opposed to the bright yellow/green colour of the male. The males are not so easy to get an image of as at this time they are always on the move in search of females. I am hoping to catch up with some males and better shots of females later in the year.
I know I have posted Peacock butterflies already, but they are nice to look at anytime.
