A recently hatched orange tip rests upon a stitchwort flower as it seeks shelter under the woodland canopy on a cool, breezy morning in Scotland.

    Wow that is a little beauty Sf, well done you with all that windy weather you’ve been having :)

  • Ah, my perseverence paid off, Jacky, but I was a very lucky lady that day to come across a butterfly which seemed happy to pose for me, lol! I ended up in the woods as it was too windy out in the open. xx
