Brimstone Butterfly







For the first time I managed pictures of a Brimstone Butterfly yesterday.

We were visiting at Scunthorpe and went to Messingham Sand Quarry (LWT) for the first time.

A super little reserve, we saw Brimstones early on our walk and one dropped near brambles for me to get some shots.

Brimstones were mating and during our walk we also saw Speckled Wood and Orange Tip. Pictures taken hand held.

Nice one Mike - it is a cracking little reserve at Messingham and am heading there this week for Hairy Dragonflies

Thanks Chris.
Good luck Matt. The bonus is my son-in-law lives in Scunthorpe now so I hope to visit this area much more.

Lovely images Mike:-) I like to see the Brimstones, they are easy to get a good picture too, not too flighty like the smaller ones are.
