Martin sent us this photo of a Clouded Yellow which he saw at Holt Heath on 12/07/19 but said how much more colourful it looked when flying.

According to the light these butterflies can appear a different colour yellow each time you see one, but always beautiful to see. Considering the hot weather of late not many seem to have been recorded so far this year.
