Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni)
The first butterfly sighting of the year for me.
Observed this male today during my woodland walk and it was the only one that I did observe.
It would have emerged from hibernation very recently, maybe in the last day or two, as this occurs during the first few warm days of Spring.
Interesting to see spring is coming ,NettReplyDelete
Things should be improving now for Nature Nette.Delete
Still a bit miffed I have not seen this Butterfly, we do get them in this area too. Back to snow and cold to day...ReplyDelete
We have had some quite nice days in the last week Amanda.Delete
Nice one Roy...you're off the mark!...[;o)ReplyDelete
Thanks Trevor, yes, but its getting colder again for a few days so I doubt that there will be too many additions for a while.Delete
Hey Roy... Well leave it to you to be the first to see a butterfly : ) Nice!!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks GG, this species is always likely to be one of the first.Delete
Very pretty! I saw my first butterfly yesterday. It was a small tortoiseshell.ReplyDelete
Thanks Gunilla. Hopefully that will be one of my next sightings if the weather improves.Delete
