Early arrival

A beautiful Wednesday evening meant that Jo and I went out for an after-work stroll up to the top of Novers Hill, which offers great views across the northern part of the hills. At the highest point I found this Painted Lady, the first I have seen this year. It was not particularly settled and was having to fend off a territorial Wall butterfly, so the photograph is not the best.

Jo had in fact been for a longer walk up Long Batch earlier in the day, and had taken a photograph of a mystery moth - this Ruby Tiger. I am slightly envious, as I have only ever seen the hairy larva and not the adults, but pleased to know they are around the area.
