Butterflies 2015 No 36

By tomcat    
A male Marbled White Melanargia galathea taken very early doors this morning

Not often you see a butterfly photographer armed with a brolly, but mine was put to good use this morning when the intermittent rain appearedWink
I was determined to have a decent session with the Twywell Marbleds, while they are still in pristine conditionSmile

Visited there early yesterday morning, but gave up after 30 minutes - too warm, too bright and too windySad

Many thanks to Ali (ali63), Jenny (Jenny-D), Alan (Alan_Baseley) & Tony (TonyDy) for their awards given to the HF
Sincere apologies if I have missed anyone out with a PM, but still up to the neck in it at this endBlush
