By the Colour Yellow

On the final Bank Holiday Monday in May I went to visit Alners Gorse in the  hope of some butterflies.  Unfortunately the warmish weather had turned to cold and windy by the time I got there.  A quick walk round saw no signs of any butterflies, so I decided to try my luck at the fields near Fiddleford Manor.  Unfortunately although the fields were full of buttercups and a few mayflies there was no sign of even a roosting butterfly.  However I did manage a couple of images there, one of a yellow dung fly and the other of some buttercups.  Hope you like them.
