It seems to have been quite a good year for butterflies here...at any one time we've had several species...and one day in August we had NINE painted ladies.... ;D (as well as looooooooaaads of cabbage whites.....)

So you're the one who has been hogging all the butterflies, CPB. It has not been a good year here for me. Even with the butterfly bushes in bloom, I haven't seen more than 2 monarchs at any one time in the garden. Not good. Not much better for bees.
Praise for the singing. Praise for the morning. Praise for them springing fresh from the world
A lot of beautiful butterflies in the garden today despite the time of year. Red Admiral, small tortoishell and a comma were all basking in the sunshine, but I was a bit busy and had mucky hands - did manage to snap this one after I'd cleaned myself up a bit ..

Lovely Plocket. the 1st of August is butterfly spotting day, they want people to report any butterflys and daytime moths that they see, so they can assess the numbers , I saw it on the BBC homepage so I'm not sure where the web site is. .
maybe life didn't turn out to be the party you thought, but while your here you may as well dance
Well done Plocket, would have been a good POTM3 worth - I can safely say that I have never seen that and oddly enough google doesn't say too much about it either....not the sites that I have seen anyway.
Will certainly try make a pic, now that I know.
