At last

I've seen butterflies! All of the hibernators have been recorded but until yesterday, I hadn't seen any. 2 Tortoiseshells briefly visited and today 2 Tortoiseshells & 2 Peacocks.

Great catch. I saw a few yesterday but they never settled long enough to get a shot :)

@rjb71 Thanks. I was beginning to wonder if I'd see anything this March.

Very nice, our zoo has a butterfly exhibit which I hope to get to when they open.

@stownsend Thanks, Suzie, this one was kind enough to sit in the sun for a few minutes and pose for me.

@cheekylulu Thank you, Louise. Sadly like most of our butterflies, numbers have dramatically fallen in recent years.

@joev Hope you get there, Joe, you should see butterflies & moths not native to your area, some very spectacular ones. Look forward to your photos.

@susie1205 I was delighted with my first photo of the season. Hopefully it will be a long and richly prolific one.

I thought it would be much too cold for them! Lovely picture:)

@fbailey Nope. The first sighting of the year in England was January 1st but I can't remember which species it was. All 5 hibernators were seen around the country by the end of January
