The first of the season, that I have seen. Bent down to pull a few weeds out of a flower bed, and it was on an iris leaf. He stayed there most of the day, i kept checking, each time I walked up the hill.
Oh yeah.... just noticed the date on my camera was wrong...... not sure how to fix it on here! (but its fixed on the camera now)
