A week of Butterflies #1

My buddies in England have been reporting that butterfly numbers seem to be way down.

 

I have therefore decided to have a small series on butterflies from our garden to remind my buddies what these lovely critters look like.

 

All these images were created during a single hunt in our house garden, lasting about 15 minutes.

Lucky you! This is beautiful - and I'm sure with their cold, dreary weather - our English buddies will rejoice in the colorful images!
Ray: The double whammies of Snow and Brexit are a massive load for these folks, Elizabeth! smile

That is very thoughtful of you, Ray. This lovely butterfly is similar to our Clouded Yellow which migrates here in good summers. I was lucky enough to find and photograph just one. But generally butterfly numbers have been worryingly down
Ray: Fortunately, Lisl, we have many Butterflies, so the situation is not dire!
A lovely flutterby. I am going to enjoy this series but tinged with a sadness that we see so few in the flesh these days
Ray: I understand, Bill...Butterflies help to lighten the burdens of our days.

Simply as a colour scheme, this works fantastically well Ray. So butterfly numbers are down. I wonder why?
Ray: I would like to blame Boris, Chad, but feel the reason might be a little more complicated than that.
An altogether beautiful image Ray, I have a feeling your series is going to keep we English buddies happy all week.
Ray: A life without Butterflies would be a poorer life, Brian.
Lovely, Ray
Ray: I is a beautiful thing, Tom.
Well, that is a beauty certainly.
Ray: That should warm up the English a bit, Mary.
the iridescent flower complements the golden butterfly...
Ray: Zinnias [North American Wildflowers] are great Butterfly attractors, Larry.
i really love the details on the flowers, Ray
Ray: This is a zinnia, Ayush, and I take many shots of critters on it.
