Bluebells, a Shrew, Orange-tips and a Small White

Orange-tip, Anthocharis cardamines on Bluebell
Yesterday afternoon I checked Rewell Wood and found a Shrew. This morning I visited the dive Lane woods and saw 4 Orange-tips, my first Small White of the year and some Green-veined Whites. The Bluebells were a delight and the air was filled with their perfume.

I was walking along a grassy verge and saw the shrew at the same time as he saw me. We both froze and I slowly got my camera in position. To my amazement he stayed in position for a while then disappeared fast.
