Butterflies out in the sun

Peacock Butterfly on the Cliff

On the Cliff today there were four species of Butterflies:

  • Peacock (illustrated above)
  • Comma (illustrated below)
  • Brimstone (see earlier post for photo) and
  • Orange Tip – the one that got away (at least before I could take a photo!)

The first three all overwinter as adults while the Orange Tip will have hatched from a chrysalis in the last few days. It’s a great indicator that spring is just around the corner…
