I am over the moon, after stumbling across this freshly emerged male Marbled White Melanargia galathea, during a walk around Twywell this morningSmile
A fortnight earlier than last year

Hopefully my stint of working away is now over, so I can settle down to some early evening photography again and catch up with things on hereGrin

Many thanks to John (JohnoP), Brian (bricurtis), Alan (Alan_Baseley), Jenny (Jenny-D) & Malcolm (M_squared), for their generous awards given to the female Common Blue
Truly appreciated guys and galsWink

I'm sure tomcat will be sick as a parrot tonight after cosuming too much Doombar in the Talbot Arms!Tongue It looks like you have uploaded the first British marbled white on the site this year Adie, I guess this must be one of the earliest sightings of this species recorded. Have you reported this to bugalert? A fine close up shot of what will be the first of many no doubtWink This one is so fresh that its wings still look wet and haven't properly inflated. I saw a dark green fritillary that had recently emerged at Prestbury Hill yesterday afternoon, this is a full two weeks earlier than i've seen it before. This year certainly has been a strange one for emergence and flight periods
