Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly

I am late getting into the butterfly scene this Spring (as I am with birds) due to being confined to barracks.:)
I have managed now to photograph a Small Tortoiseshell, which was one of four found in long grass in open fields. 
In recent days I have also observed (although not photographed) a Brimstone (male and female), a Small White, an Orange Tip, a Peacock and a Speckled Wood.

  2. You haven't missed much Roy, untill the last few days it's not been the weather for getting out, and it would seem that the butterflies thought the same and have only just started to emerge in any numbers.
    Two lovely shots for starters, hope you're able to get out and aa 'em soon'?...[;o)

  3. Hei Roy! Toivottavasti voit hyvin! Täällä meillä ei perhosia näe vielä paljoa. Koivutyttöperhosia (Archiearis parthenias) lentelee jonkin verran.
