The Feel of Spring

The best day of the year by far with plenty of sunshine,a light breeze,and a 'spring is here' feeling.No excuse therefore for the butterflies to stay in and at Walters Copse,Newtown,several  were out in the warm sunshine.Another first this year for me was a very colourful male Brimstone,racing up and down the rides occasionally stopping to take the warmth.
Out too was a Comma and basking underneath a crab apple tree,still surrounded by last year fruit,a feeding Red Admiral.Finally a somewhat tatty Peacock butterfly in a sheltered sunny spot.
