Small tortoiseshell

We weren't the only ones persuaded by today's sunshine to think it might actually be warm outside. This small tortoiseshell butterfly must have got the same feeling, emerging from hibernation early to sample the heather. I thought the photo, and the lifting of the spirits that goes with it, is worth sharing!

Today's other photo, a close-up of lichen on a branch on the Open Space, will live for a while in the blog header.
