    This is lovely, I haven’t been lucky enough to photograph one of these successfully yet.

  • Thanks again Di. I’m sure you will one day, although you might have to wait until next summer now.

    Lovely to see a Brimstone, the past 2 seasons have been bad for them in my area.
    Beautiful shot
