Now you're just getting annoying Carol Tongue

However I did see my first Brimstone yesterday even though I didn't get anywhere near it, so it looks like spring has at last finally arrived. It's going to be a tough summer for me this year in terms of chasing butterflies Sad I have to have an operation on my left knee, can't bend the damn thing without it dislocating and then locking up. At first the doctors thought it was a cartilage problem, but after recent scans it seems the problem is a lot more serious. It never just rains in this house, we always seem to get a monsoon. It's one of the reasons I haven't been doing much photography.

Well done on this one though Carol and I'm only a little envious about you loving in Crete Tongue
