The Wizard of Cissbury Ring

Clouded Yellow
I completed most of my packing for the Maldives so after lunch we headed off to Cissbury Ring. A couple of Red Admirals were nectaring on gorse on the north west side. When we came round to the north east side I spotted Neil lying down with camera trained on something interesting. I did not dare hope that it was the elusive Clouded Yellow, but it was - a beautiful male that was cooperating fully due to the low temperature. Neil shared the experience and my last day before chasing butterfly fish in the Indian Ocean was complete - The Wizard had cast his spell again - Neil rules the Hill...
