Butterflies and Moths (7): First Caterpillar of 2012 ... for me

Seen at Snape. I suspect a Small Tortoiseshell.
This must be very late for me to be seeing my first caterpillar of the year! I don't think I've caught up with life since our move to East Anglia, but perhaps it is a late season for butterflies.

You might enjoy the UK Butterfly site's Spring Butterfly Photographic Contest (showing winners at the end) here.

Great shot, Caroline. Have not seen many caterpillars or butterflies this year. Must be the wet weather! Thanks for commenting on my blog.

I think it's a late season for a lot of things this year. Lovely photo
