Orange-tip Butterfly

I know it’s not a bird but I managed to get some pleasing shots of an orange tip butterfly in the garden today. It has an unusual mossy green under-wing which contrasts with the orange tipped white upper wing. I also saw my first speckled wood butterfly of the  year in a hedgerow yesterday and several small blue butterflies  in the garden and elsewhere.

I think Spring has sprung!
