Green and White

Green Hairstreak Butterfly

Late April, beginning of May is a good time to look for this species.
May bush flowers or Elderberry leaves are likely locations to find them.
There is only one brood per year. Colonies are found at numerous locations in UK and Ireland.







Large White Butterfly

A species that can be found anywhere.
This one I photographed is a male. The female has black spots on the wings.
There are normally two broods during the year.
