Clouded Yellow Butterfly

Delighted to see the bright yellow/orange of a Clouded Yellow Butterfly fluttering around me as I removed some barbed wire fencing pushed over by the cattle yesterday.

It did settle near me and I was able to get a this photo. They always settle with their wings closed. You can read more about this butterfly on the UKButterfly website which also has pictures of the colourful upper side of the wings normally only seen in flight.
