An eye on nature...

Chasing Cleopatra through the woods...

I think this is a Cleopatra rather than a Brimstone, as when it's wings were open the upper part was flushed with quite a strong orange colour. I waded through waist high bushes trying to capture this, but as soon as it settled it closed it's wings so I couldn't capture the beautiful yellow and orange, and it flew off rather quickly over bushes and trees I couldn't get through!
