Not a lot to say about a picture which speaks for itself, other than Hooray! Spring is really - well nearly - properly here.

This is my first Orange Tip sighting for 2016. I also photographed its beautiful underwings with their lacy pattern of greenish-grey, but messed up the focus so that all the delicacy was blurred. Still, there'll be other chances.

That takes this year's butterfly tally to four: Brimstone, Peacock, Small Tortoiseshell and now Orange Tip. Happy St George's Day, 400th Birthday of Shakespeare et al.
