Saw this poor wind battered Cabbage White [ Pieris Brassicae ] battling the wind to stay on our Geranium. I grabbed the camera and ran outside and managed to get two fairly decent images of it before the wind blew it over the fence and out of sight Smile It does sport a bit of a shadow to qualify it for a Saturday upload Smile
Thanx so much for your comments and votes on my Crested Guinea Fowl yesterday - much appreciated !!
It is freezing here with a strong wind - again ! Rain and snow predicted for later today Smile

The cabbage whites are looking rather tatty now, Herman, but still worth photographing, as you have shown here with these two excellent captures. 'Snow forecast', doesn't bear thinking about Sad Carol
