Small tortoiseshell

A busy day, beginning when my son turned up before breakfast, unexpectedly and on his way from Southampton to Guildford.  It was lovely to see him.

But all in all, I didn't have much time for walking, a shame as it was another lovely day.  Hazel and I did, however, go for a minor ramble on Barton Farm.  It was on the way there that I saw this small tortoiseshell .  Again, the first I've seen this year.  It had arrayed itself very prettily on a michaelmas daisy (which I'd love to include in my wildflower list, but fear it's a garden variety).

I don't think there can be many more butterflies in the year though, do you?

Have a good Monday evening  xx
