I’ve seen a lot of butterflies and bees around already in the Cotswolds. That one is new to me x
mmmmmmm. Yum. Butterfly blooms.
Beautiful shot of an early butterfly–I am hoping to see one of these soon, since I know they should be active by now.
What kind of butterfly is this? So pretty!
Just seen the first butterflies this morning too!
Love it’s beautiful design and colors!
Wow already!? I planted milkweed last year, so I hope I get monarchs this year!
looks like an Egyptian charm! so beautiful!
Oh, happy capture! I saw one the other day and was so astonished to see it winging by!
When I first glanced at your posting, I thought “Oh! A typo error” Then I looked more closely: Is the butterfly “caught” in the muddy ground, and perhaps you are mourning it’s demise? Beautiful colouring, but still, I prefer your mournful description.
