Very Pretty. I can't remember seeing one before. Roy.

Thank you ROY

I was trying to photograph a black cap when this appeared/settled near to the footpath. Surprised it was accepted for GE but pleased. This is the (handsome)male. Females look similar to cabbage white. I think they're quite common. I certainly see them yearly without searching for them. (One in our garden last weekend!)

wow! i dont think i ever seen these ones! we were couple of days ago for a walk on aberlady bay and after few hours on way back we noticed butterflies :) the usual brown coloured ones... never got shot though- they were just flapping around. is not too early for them? but then again- its almost like summer :)

black cap... got one shot a year ago, since then never have seen any around here.

Find these flowers Unda & you might see these male butterflies. This is an early one. So not too early for this specie.

I've recently been reading a book "The Butterfly Isles" by Patrick Barkam. A very interesting book I didn't know Britain had 60 variieties of butterflies. The author set out to see all 60 in one year (March -October)!!!
