sure, didn't I say it wouldn't be long before the butterflies were back?
...they're so speedy and I thought I'd just missed this one, but by sheer luck caught it mid air - a split second later and it would have been yet another shot of an empty lavender bush. I have many.
This is a great time for butterfly spotting, and there seem to be more of them about than last year, which is promising. I know I've already mentioned the Big Butterfly Count - but just a reminder that it's on at the moment, and if you'd like to join in there's an identification chart here.
