There may be Bluebells emerging but that is not the answer for me.

A crop of the pic.

I'm out of guesses, I just can't see it. I'll offer small tortoiseshell but its a guess based on clues rather than what I can see

Edit: unless one of the "leaves" is a brimstone?

You've expressed my own thoughts with uncanny accuracy there Stuart. What I thought might be a Robin is precisely what was identified then rejected as a Meadow Brown. After that I'm with you. I can't see it. I can see what could be a pupa of some sort, or a fly, and a leaf that [U]could be a Brimstone, but the colour doesn't look right.

Time to show us the answer Judith?

Tony

I cannot believe that you did not see the tiny red ant top left of the pic!

Only kidding!

It is a Comma butterfly resting in the sunshine.

Thank you to you all for having 'a go'! I said it was a tough one, an easier one next time perhaps.
