This is another one of Shona’s photos from last year that she recently sent in telling us:

This female Brimstone amused me at Alner’s Gorse on 30/072020. She was initially nectaring on the lower flower, then decided that the upper flower was more appealing. But she didn’t bother moving, just reached up with her proboscis. Not exactly a case of the grass being greener, maybe the flower being yellower?
