Finally - we've seen hardly any of these lovely things all summer, so today I was very happy today to find this one and a black one on the butterfly bushes down by my mail box.
I also saw the first Common Wood-Nymph I've ever seen this morning. I took some photos, but the camera had a hard time focusing - mostly it focused on the grass instead of the insect. I've been trying - with no success - to get a couple of extras of the black swallowtail and the wood-nymph to load. I'll try again after I publish this main blip.
Edit - there! Where there's a will, there's a way. As my mother used to say regularly.
