Garden 'First' - Brimstone Butterfly


I made my first recording to date of a Brimstone (male) in our garden yesterday. I wondered if I had glimpsed one the day before, but yesterday's was a definite sighting. It perched on our gold Euonymus bush for a couple of seconds, sadly not long enough for me to get my camera into focus, before flying off. But it was there.

The photos above an below were taken on previous occasions and in different places, but they show the difference in colour between the female and the male.

I shall soon be posting an updated garden list of the species I have observed...

Lovely! We don't get brimstones this far north

As was I, you are lucky to catch one settled, if even for a split second!

All the best Jan
