LATEST IMAGES - APRIL
Whilst Phil was away in Spain, I tried to make the most of the lovely sunny weather we were having at home. We always have lots of Ladies Smock or Cuckoo Flower in our garden and these are the food plant of the beautiful Orange Tip Butterfly. The best time to photograph these was during cloudy interludes either early or late in the day, when they rested on the flowers.
