Butterfly Season...GO

After all these bird entries it is good to actually have an entry concerning butterflies. Despite seeing 3 Red admirals throughout January it feels as if things have started to now happen as I found my first Wall Brown larva of the year today at High and Over. At just over 1 cm. long it has a lot of growing still to do and it was not easy getting any images in the cold steady breeze. Over the next couple of months I hope to see more larva as they grow steadily and become slightly easier to find. Then, the really hard bit comes when they turn into pupa and they are almost impossible to find!!
