De plus en plus beau, tes photos sont très belles.
Ray: Je suis content que tu les aimes, Martine.
I like this one best of all, so far...
Ray: You have good taste, Larry.
A beautiful chocolate and butterscotch butterfly!
Ray: Chocolate brown butterflies are not very common, Elizabeth, but they are gorgeous critters when their decoration includes butterscotch highlights.

This flower has a lot of attraction for the butterflies. What a wonderful species this is as well. Great series about the butterflies.
Ray: I am hoping my English buddies are feeling warmed by them, Astrid.
YAY for the butterflies, Ray. We need them...just like the bees?!
Ray: Butterflies are most calming critters Ginnie...I love observing them in the garden.

Such a bevy of beauty this week, Ray - and they certainly like the zinnias
Ray: Butterflies do love Zinnias, Lisl, and also appreciate these Mexican Sunflowers we have in the garden.

Yet another beauty at breakfast to appreciate
Ray: That should give the rice bubbles some crackle and pop, Chris.

It looks like the wings are from a different variety; the colour co-ordination is not good. I expect its mum loved it, though.
Ray: The colour co-ordination is perfecto, maaaate...I have a feeling you are still suffering from the Cream Tea drought you encountered in Cornwall... smile

That garden of yours must be butterfly heaven or Christmas decorations gone life. To think that these were shot in 15 mins.
Ray: I had hopes that a garden around the house would bring interesting critters to me, has worked as desired.

The colour scheme is improving once again Ray.
Ray: I am so glad to have sorted this out for you, Chad.

You may be disappointed tomorrow, but I have a special treat for you on Friday...stay with me.
A real stunner, Ray - both the butterfly and your pic.
Ray: Thank you, Tom. Our garden is a magnet for these lovelies.
I would like to show my fellow club members your picutres this week just so they know how natural history shots should be done.
Ray: You are very kind, Brian.
What great camo colours this species has. Eccellent shot.
Ray: They do seem like good colours for blending in, Mary, but this butterfly is surprisingly easy to spot.
