view of a Brimstone egg laying on Buckthorn

Brimstone. Photo: Ann Barlow

Ann photographed this Brimstone in her Corfe Mullen garden on 5/05/18 and tells us:

. This was a very exciting moment, as we planted this tree for the butterflies several years ago, and have not seen any caterpillars so far on the tree, although we get adult Brimstones in the garden.

Ann is going to watch over this tree and hopefully get a photo of a caterpillar in the near future.
