Brimstone Butterfly

Brimstone Butterfly (Buddleja davidii (Butterfly bush))

Another gorgeous butterfly in the garden......I was hoping to catch it with open wings as it is a brilliant lemon yellow, but had to settle for the underside whilst it was busy feeding.

Have you seen the results, so far, of the Big Butterfly Count ? Small white is top of the list of 10, then large white, gatekeeper, meadow brown, common blue, peacock, green-veined white, red admiral, small tortoiseshell and ringlet.
I have yet to see a Gatekeeper in real life !

This is the worst year I've ever know for butterflies here in Norfolk. A bumper year for Dragonflies though !
