Another Butterfly

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last butterfly. Special thanks to Fred (Badgerfred), Peter (Mollycat), Jeff (kojack), David (davidgibson), Ade (ade123), Carol (canoncarol), Fred (Fred263), Steve (sparrowhawk), Alan (Alan_Baseley) and Jenn (taggart) for your smashing User Awards.

We went up to the hide today and I actually got some shots of a Goldfinch on thistles but I saw this yellow butterfly in the field by the hide so Stan and I chased it round the field for a bit and it finally landed - very briefly. Stan didn't chase it he just followed me! Anyway I think its a Clouded Yellow but please correct me if I am wrong. Hope you like it.

Cathy and Stan
