Author's notes

It was like chasing pieces of paper with the camera - no good shot anywhere. But literally nearly 200 butterflies rose up out of the grass, drifted over the fence in ones or twos with the strong wind, and made their way to the big trees where I lost every single one of them. Two were Yellow Admirals (no photo), and about 30 were Cabbage Whites. It was quite relaxing watching them for over 30 minutes.
