Summer's definitely coming

Whilst walking the dogs earlier today. I noticed quite a few signs other than the sunshine that summer is well on it's way. The swallows have arrived and ladies smock is starting to flower but the most surprising sign was a few butterflies floating about. They were very spooky and as such I failed to get a shot of the Tortoiseshell at all but I did manage, but only just, a single shot of a Painted Lady before it dissapeared out of sight:



It's among the first photos I've taken with my new E3 although the photo has little photographic merit I was more than happy with the IQ especially given I took it handheld with the 50mm macro & EC-20.

Given that both swallows and painted ladies migrate from Africa it's perhaps no surprise that they have arrived together but I honestly can't remember seeing these butterflies here as early as this before?

I don't know about that I'd have been happy to have took it.

I didn't see one of these last year after being overun the year before.

Saw my first Orange-tip today but it didn't want it picture taken.Also saw a Brimstone as well.
