At last the decent weather is finally here and the butterflies have come out in profusion in response!!

Finally a chance of an early morning session at a local Marbled White hotspot before work where this freshly emerged male was determined to make the most of the break in the weather!

Well it wasn't exactly perfect weather in Provence last time with 6-7C in May and most days rainy, but it didn't stop it being a great trip! I just had to let the camera dry out for an hour once the buttons stopped working as the rain got in! Smile

Unfortunately in the UK bad weather is far less productive than in France!
