It was a pleasant surprise to find at least two Marbled White butterflies yesterday at a location where they are known to exist, but not this early in the year. Although generally they are due to be flying at this time, I have not recorded them quite so early as this at the location.
I have posted the best two of the hurried shots I took. Being males they were certainly on the move most of the time. One had to keep following them around in the hope they would pitch, which was very infrequently. I do hope they slow up a little later on so that I can get some better images.
