The first butterfly...
...early this morning...she was sunning herself in the early morning misty sun...
Awfully sorry, but I have deleted my Painted Lady entry. I will try and put her in extras in a bit.
MAIN BLIP is now a Holly Blue. She is so tiny, one wing is not much bigger than my thumbnail. She is very hard to see. I don't see these very often, the first one this year...
I just counted 81 butterflies in the Big #ButterflyCount. Help @SaveButterflies & join in at http://bigbutterflycount.org
67 Painted Ladies
1 Red Admiral
6 small whites
Counted in just one minute on one of my many Buddliea bushes.
So there was really a few hundred more than this. But it is what you can count in one minute on your butterfly bush!
