One of many seen on my frequent canal walks. This is a male the female is white with grey/blue features which I’m yet to capture with my camera as I’m just not fast enough.

:) I thought so too, Thanks Klahanie. The abundance of wildlife along the canal fascinates me.

Very pretty capture, Cariad. Sounds like quite a serene walk along the canal too! Lots of interest no doubt.

Thank you Kate I am guilty of enjoying photography too only in the beginning stages as I am with gardening really if you can’t already tell lol. I’m interested in foraging too I recently purchased a book to make sure I don’t kill myself in the process :) the canal seems the perfect place to start.

We saw our first 2 Orange Tips while in Devon last week. We've been leaving shed doors and windows open so 'our' butterflies can escape after their winter slumber. Good capture, Cariad.

Lovely little things aren’t they. I never thought about that thank you for the tip Anget:)

I think it's so warm now most of them have flown, but early on there's always one or two fluttering at the garage window trying to escape..

I can imagine it’s a nice surprise to see them in there though.
