Monarch butterfly sipping nectar! 'Arilka' Adelaide Hills. Aust. by 

Please click on image to view larger.

I planted a Buddlea shrub to attract butterflies, now that it is flowering I am hoping to see different butterflies come to drink. Taken in my garden at Mount Pleasant. Adelaide Hills. South. Australia

I guess you could call me a shutterbug, I am for ever looking for something to photograph, and experimenting with my camera. Colour lights up my life, children, scenery, the sea in all it’s moods,native flora & fauna etc:- Please feel free to browse through the categories in my profile.
