Hi Kathy ...
thanks so much ... I was lucky to have my camera handy ... and a very co-operative butterfly ! :o)

17 Mar, 2014

 

Too right TT. They pose for you then flit off a split second before you push the button! Or close their wings and show their camouflage. The bright bits of sunshine have tempted them out.

18 Mar, 2014

 

Added to favs and GOY nominated - cos its luvverly TT :)

Fab piccie TT ~ You had your camera ready just at the right moment!

WOW! What a great shot & so early in the year as well! I haven't seen any butterflies on my Crocuses! :-((

I saw my first butterflies of the year when we were over in Cuenca, Spain visiting friends & family during the first 12 days of the month.

The last few days on the allotments I've seen lots of butterflies - I think they were only Tortoiseshells. Seen lots of bees as well.

Thanks Beehappy, Tracey and Balcony ...
let's hope it will be a great year for butterflies :o)

27 Mar, 2014
