  1. Why the grass always appear greener on the other side? Really, its not that butterflies back here are not beautiful or varied, but still yours look so much more beautiful! Sure, credit goes to your photography as much as to these beautiful butterflies. Very nice collection.

  3. What a lovely collection and fabulous photos. Love the Common Blue covered in dew, and I see what you mean about the tatty Silver-washed now! Clouded Yellows have such funky eyes and you can't beat a great photo of a Peacock - those ones are stunning. I haven't even seen a Common Blue this year and since the weather turned wet and then cooler, there are not so many butterflies around. Hopefully it will pick up!

    Thanks for your lovely comments here. Yes, I didn't actually see a pristine clouded yellow the day I photographed them but there are lots of common blue here, saw some just yesterday. Still time of course-I found a fresh batch of large white larvae on my nasturtiums yesterday!
