Thank you, we used to have hundreds of different types of butterflies in our garden but drought and extreme Winters, in the last few years, has cut down their numbers drastically.
STUNNING capture of this very beautiful interesting butterfly!
Thank you very much :)
This is utterly Gorgeous Dennis! Wonderful find my friend! We rewrote the rules in Urban Wildlife so we take paintings now too. The rules were way too restrictive for my tastes. Paintings of wild animals that might be in an urban area are fine like deer, bears, squirrels, ect…depending on your area. :0)
Many thanks :)
This is lovely Dennis!
Thank you Leigh, we certainly get some beautiful butterflies in our garden :)
