Butterflies & Bushes

Last week there were more butterflies around than any year I have ever seen! Floating like leaves on the wind, they were everywhere.

There were so many butterflies in these flowers! Can you count how many?




I was not able to capture any on these flowers, but they are beautiful in their own right.


“A butterfly, which when pursued, seems always just beyond your grasp; but if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

I adore butterflies, seeing your photos makes me realize butterflies are a rather whimsical creation, so pretty and with delicate wings, some migrate for a thousand miles. Wow. Your flowers are pretty too.

What a lovely sight! I am imagining the butterflies flying all over the flowers in your garden.

Sandi said...

Amazing!

You must be on the migration route.

They sure are pretty. Mostly I see moths around here. There is only an occasional butterfly. I need some of those pretty flowers to make them want to come and visit

Beautiful photos of the butterflies, and pretty flowers too. I noticed a lot of butterflies this year, I miss them now. It always feels good to see them fluttering around.
