THE BIG BUTTERFLY COUNT

... is on.

So today hasn't been the best of days for counting butterflies, but there's plenty of time to get your sightings in.

I'm going to wait for a sunny day!

Big Butterfly Count

To date, all these beautiful butterflies have been regular visitors to my garden.

Above is the Small White on Verbena bonariensis.



A Red Admiral on Cephalaria gigantea.



A Speckled Wood on Buddleia davidii.



A Gatekeeper on Marjoram.



A Common Blue on Stachys byzantina.



A Comma on Euphorbia ?.

Wonderful photos Louise, it looks like you will have plenty of butterflies to count when the sun shines! Seeing them in the garden makes wildlife gardening so worthwhile doesn't it?

Beautiful photos. The rain has driven our butterflies away! Hopefully once the sun returns (I am hopeful) I will take part in the butterfly count! Just catching up with all your previous posts. I didn't realise you had posted here so frequently recently! x
