Peacock Butterfly drinking nectar from a Buddleia. These can live for up to 11 months and prefer to live in nettle beds.
Usually this plant attracts Painted Ladies and this is the first time I’ve seen Peacock butterflies visiting the garden.
This was just one of a half dozen or so around yesterday afternoon. Is it the same one as I have uploaded before ? I don’t know.
Location – Bolton Lancashire North West UK

Sony DSC-HX1

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.
