My First Butterfly of 2013

Real bit of Spring in the air today, and I was delighted to see a Small Tortoiseshell flying over the garden early this afternoon in Bargoed. This is exactly one week earlier for the species than last year. The insect was a bit the worst for wear with rather ragged wings, survived hibernation though, only hope that this year is kinder to both our butterflies and moths than the last one was!!!
