We saw our first Large White (a male) in our garden at Harman’s Cross today, 26/04/2021  It posed on the leaves of a Daylily (not yet flowering). This is the 8th species of butterfly in our garden so far this year. Others being – Small White, Speckled Wood, Comma, Peacock, Red Admiral, Brimstone and Orange Tip. Just 20 more species to go to equal our garden total for 2020!  As it posed for me to take the photograph it looked rather like a Paper Aeroplane ready for take off!
