    Ooh you're a right teaser! LOL Good luck with angle shades. It may be a bit early in the year for parasites, I hope so!

    Great surprise when I checked assorted eggs & pupae overwintering in shed ... very early emergence of one of the two Toadflax Brocade but sad because it has very badly malformed wings, obviously didn't inflate fully even though there was height available for climbing up ... poor little thing was desperately trying to fly after I bought her into house, currently residing in butterfly house with some sugar water, can only keep her safe!

    Will get a better pic tomorrow, didn't want to disturb her any more today!
