Early Morning Pays Off.

After finding a few fresh Marbled Whites yesterday I decided that an early morning session was in order, especially as the weather was pretty good with very light winds and a nice bit of sunshine. The weather was also not going to keep that way for very long (no surprise there then). Anyway, it wasn't long before I had come across a few more Marbled Whites, it was now hoping to find a perfect specimen that wasn't too flighty. It was the 4th one that I saw that was a right little poser and he performed well for me allowing both top-side and under-side shots. This one also had the benefit of having both antennae attached.

A further search of the area also brought me my first Small Skipper of the year.

It wasn't long after arriving home that the wind increased dramatically that would have made these shots impossible to get!!

    1. Thanks all for your continued interest. I just love Marbled Whites, especially early in the flight season when they are so fresh. I'm sure there will be a few more pictures of them before long!! Probably not today though as it is pouring with rain outside with near gale force winds!!
