  2. Love the beautiful butterflies. I seldom see attractive ones, mostly only the white cabbage butterfly and moths.

  4. Beautiful photos of a beautiful butterfly. They look so ephemeral and delicate - like fairies dancing among the flowers. Thanks for sharing :)

  8. These are pure delight! I've never seen a butterfly like that. To me, it appears they are doing a lovely summer dance.

    1. We have have them all over our gardens this time of year. They are known as the Queen butterfly....at first glance, they look like monarchs...So many butterflies here right now. It's amazing how the heat get the party started!

  12. Love all the butterfly photos. This year there seems to be a super abundance of them in my gardens here along the shores of Lake Michigan in USA. They add lots to the garden. Jack

  17. They are very beautiful because of the pale plants around them. They are like fairies! I think they are Danaus species too like the monarchs. We have one Danaus species also in our yard sometimes. I wonder why yours are all there when there are no flowers, maybe depositing their eggs. But are those plants milkweed too?
