autumn butterflies

another glorious sunny week, though cold at night, is bringing basking butterflies, mainly the larger ones - this Red Admiral and camera-shy Peacocks, to the michaelmas daisies and remaining calendulas.


  1. I've had quite a few large cabbage whites in my yard these last few days, too. Nice to see them fluttering about.

  2. ALL butterflies are enchanting and fairy-like but I'm not fond of the Cabbage Whites' caterpillars. No way though to have the butterflies without them.
