24-25 March. Season 2018 opens!

Snow still in the woodlands, lakes and pools still under the grip of ice, but it is a time of change - temperatures climbing to above 5C, skeins of geese heading north,  White Storks and Cranes newly arrived.

 

 Siberian Winter Damselfly

 

 

And, despite the temperatures remaining low, just enough sun these couple of days to kick the season off - in vivid yellow, a male Brimstone on the 24th, then a Small Tortoiseshell the next day, one Siberian Winter Damselfly too.

 

 

 

 

So there it was, my first butterflies and damselflies of the year in Lithuania, so the season starts.
