Cupped a Peacock in my greenhouse Friday just. Comma, Peacock, ... . Wonderful things.

Beautiful, Dave.

Almost surreal...

Lovely photograph.. can't say I've seen as many butterflies this year, or bees for that matter. The lavender bushes haven't had as many visitors either in the garden.

Lovely shot Dave, my butterfly bush is huge this year and it’s been full of different species of butterflies.. a joy to see.

Beautiful. Makes you realise Nature is still going on at a time when we all feel everything is at a standstill. A heartening photo.

Butterflies might be beautiful when they are fluttering around your butterfly bushes , but just think of the damage they have caused to the poor veg gardeners when they are crawling and nibbling all the plants

I'm not quite sure you are right on that one Mick. Not all butterflies do damage. We get lots of butterflies & bees in the garden & the only butterfly that I know of that does any damage is the Cabbage White....laying its yellow eggs where you dont want them.

I'd rather have nibbled leaves and butterflies than perfect leaves and flutterbygones.

Mick are you sure you didn't fall off the top of the ladders?

Good ol Mick, he's still a little ray of sunshine aint he.?

Well said, Cyril.

They are an asset to our countryside. Such a great pleasure. As Maureen says...a joy to see...

Keep 'em coming, Dave. We rely on you.
