Brimstone returns

In the late morning sunshine a female brimstone (I like to think of it as the female brimstone) came hopping back over the hedge to lay more eggs on our buckthorn bush.

After a while she settled on the ground for a rest, tilting over on one side so that she was not very obvious despite her colour.

Later she returned to egg laying in the buckthorn bush until chased away by an irritable-looking blue tit.
