Painted Lady.

This little lady was sunning herself on a path in my back garden.
She let me hover just a few inches over her !

In paper the other day was reading we may have biggest hatchings of Painted Ladies for years ! Apparently thousands came over in May and as each could lay up to 300 eggs,by August could be billion in UK.Wont that be something !

I took photos of them in the garden this afternoon! My Agastache seems to be a butterfly magnet.

lovely picture, how close were you?

I've got some "butterfly-friendly" and "bee-friendly" plant seeds, I'll have to get moving on them; hope they'll take in planters, as I've no actual ground to put them in.
