Very nice BB. We have lots of butterflies around at the mo - but the small, brown type. They dont stay still for very long to check their colours.

28 Jun, 2009

 

Lol Milky..they do dont they !

Dawn....true..times last year spent running around the garden chasing the elusive butterflies !

28 Jun, 2009

Thanks....this photo taken after 5 minutes of running around like a lunatic when he finally landed !

28 Jun, 2009

 

Lovely sharp pic.

28 Jun, 2009

 

Thank goodness he landed, the thought of the trauma you went through chasing after him is painful! but glad you made it a Great Picture!

Thanks Paul and Pansy !

28 Jun, 2009

 

Glad you persevered with taking this photo (although I must admit I would love to see a photo of you running around like a lunatic!!)

Coincidentally I rescued one from the greenhouse today, first one I've seen in the garden this year.

29 Jun, 2009

 

Thanks all.Gee...running around the garden after butterflies is a common sight in summer.The neighbours are used to it ! Lol

29 Jun, 2009

 

Me too Gee, I can just picture you Ray - good exercise though.

29 Jun, 2009

 

Thanks Dawn...like I really need the extra exercise !

29 Jun, 2009

 

Ha ha - looks like our stinging nettles are doing the trick then with all these butterflies around and the buddleias are in bud ready for them so all is good!

30 Jun, 2009

 

I'm glad it's not just me being a lunatic, Bb! I've been chasing butterflies all week - hehe!

30 Jun, 2009

 

Wonderful pic BB....a very handsome Flutterbye and he knows it too!...:o) Yes my Buddleias are ready for flowering Dawnsaunt....I think they're early this year....:o)

30 Jun, 2009

 

Hi Dawn...yes our buddleias are also in bud.Gave them good prune last year and they have taken off !
Lol Spritz...bet you make a prettier sight than me !!

Thanks Janey...hoping we see lots more than last year when it was so wet !

30 Jun, 2009

 

Great shot! The detail is so fine :) I'm sure the neighbors have great fun watching you go coocoo for flutterbyes. I was practically on my belly for my recent butterfly pics. What we won't do for that shot we can't do w out!

Superb picture. I agree with Milky, the antenni look wonderful.

3 Jul, 2009

 

My Verbena bonariensis are just coming into bloom - last year they were the plant where I was able to photograph most butterflies! I shall be lurking with my camera.... hehe!

3 Jul, 2009

 

Happy lurking Spritz ! Hope you get some great photos !

Thanks all...

They seem to depart when the weather's dull and dreary, like today.

3 Jul, 2009

 

We had dull and dreary too today,but it was better to work in !

3 Jul, 2009

 

I'm sure it was, Bb! I gave myself the day off - I went swimming, then to a discount village for some bits and pieces. NOT plants! (Makes a change!)The car said it was 7 degrees cooler than yesterday.

3 Jul, 2009

 

Put in 6 days last week so giving myself weekend off ! Plenty to do in our garden though,and lawn needs cutting.Am banned from cutting it third week in July as Jane reckons thats when baby frogs will be emerging from pond ! Lol

3 Jul, 2009

 

On a lane over the Quantock Hills, at one side there's a reservoir. There are notices on the lane saying 'Toads crossing' with a large pic of a toad! The signs get folded over when the toads are NOT migrating to the reservoir!

How about that? LOL.

lovely close-up BB wish i could get one to stay still long enough

4 Jul, 2009

 

Haven't seen one of these this year, only got Painted Ladys in my garden.

4 Jul, 2009

 

Think the answer to provide a butterfly bench Sanbaz. Let them flit round the garden they ll eventually be glad of the rest

Only Painted Ladies ? Not seen one for many years so think you very lucky Oldgunner.

4 Jul, 2009

 

not heard of that BB you mean a bench close to plants!

4 Jul, 2009

 

Beautiful butterfly.

5 Jul, 2009

 

Bonkers. I understand what you mean about Milky getting worse! What would a meer woman know about LED's?

5 Jul, 2009

 

Yes Sanbaz some people might choose to sit on them but our wildlife use it to over look the pond the only thing with more bird pooh on it is my van .

Thanks Sunblest

Aye Toto initially I thought the same as you then wondered if shes got them fitted to Ray ..so she can find him in the dark to wake him up and send him to bed .

5 Jul, 2009

 

Possibly!

5 Jul, 2009
