It was a beautiful warm and sunny day yesterday, and my daily wander around the garden and nearby meadow with my cam proved to be most fruitful. I couldn't believe the number of butterflies and bees that were to be seen, along with other little beasties.
How the weather can change so quickly........today I have woken to strong winds and torrential rain!

Golly, what a wonderful set. Can't choose one as they are all excellent, but if I had to, v.8 the irridescent colours are amazing! Has to be that one, although the Painted Lady is beautiful; well, they all are!
