Holly Blue

For several days now I have seen Holly Blue butterflies flying through our garden. I didn’t know where they had come from or where they were going.

Just to be different these images are all within the blog. They are NOT part of a flickr album. Clicking on them should load a bigger version though.

Yesterday I saw one of them stop on its way through and it gave me time to get my camera.

The Buddleia is now getting its flowers so over the next few weeks I expect to see more butterflies. The first to feed on the bush this year was this Small Tortoiseshell. Several Large Whites have also been flying through the garden, seem to approach the Buddleia, but as yet haven’t settled on anything.
