Clouded Yellow butterfly

This is the first time I have seen this butterfly. It is about the size of the Tortoiseshell butterfly and so easy to see when it flutters around.

Not one that I've seen before Linda.
Looks a beauty.

I would love to see one of these up this way! Lovely image Linda - well done!

Thankyou Keith and Richard. From what I have read about these butterflies, they have explosions in numbers from a few hundred to millions once every decade. They are very easy to see and identify no doubt. Maybe this year will be their year.

Lovely shot of this Clouded Yellow Linda.
I haven't seen any in this country as yet.
