Female Brimstone Butterfly 22 08 11

Butterfly numbers finally picking up in the garden today,with Peacock,red admirals,large and green veined whites small copper,large skipper,meadow brown,speckled wood,small tortoiseshell,the most interesting being a Female Brimstone Butterfly,we are hoping she might have laid eggs on the Buckthorn we specifically planted up in this garden quite a few years back,hoping to attract this species,as a few wandering Males had been seen !also single Brown and Common Hawker Dragonflies were finally seen only the 2nd/3rd dragonfly species along with a Male Broad Bodied Chaser earlier on in May seen so far this year.
