Summer on delicate wings
Clouded Yellow, Courtyard Farm, NW Norfolk, August 2009
Hummingbird Hawkmoth, Rosary Cemetery, Norwich, August 2009
Been a summer of grabbed moments between work and baby care duties. Despite these restrictions its been a good one for butterflies. Starting with the phenomenal Painted Lady invasion, then an unexpected emergence of Small Tortoiseshells, then in the last couple of weeks I have seen my first Clouded Yellow for a couple of years and added Hummingbird Hawkmoth to both my year list and Rosary Cemetery lists. It just goes to show what you can see when you keep your eyes open.
