No fire just brimstone!

May - Sue

Spotted a beautiful Common Brimstone butterfly at a cemetery near Bath. An unexpected sight and looked just like a leaf as it settled with folded wings which were mint green with a white streak. The wings folded were the shape of two Beech leaves slightly overlapping. I had never seen one before so felt very lucky.
Caught on camera on a very hot day whilst visiting a cemetery near Bath, easy to stay isolated there! This beautiful delicate Common Brimstone butterfly looked very much like a leaf at first . I’ve never spotted one before so was delighted. Thought it was a moth at first as it landed with its wings folded but it is a butterfly. They love purple flowers apparently. Felt very blessed to have seen it.
