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.
