This Evening

Earlier this evening; this beautiful creature emerged right before my eyes as I was clipping daffodil stems. By the time I got my camera, it had found the bluebells and was getting ready to fly !!

Posting this image for CarolG in hopes that she, too, will find a way to spread her wings and FLY!

We CAN have two miracles this week!

And Rascal says THANK YOU to MalcolmS for his User Award-- very pleased he is, tho he remains a rascal!

A very lovely little visitor to your garden and the blue of the flowers makes such a delicate and pretty compliment to colours of the butterfly.

How beautiful Jenn SmileSmile
I remember seeing a moth emerge once and I ran through the school to get my camera and got back just in time to see the last stage - a wonderful experience

My favourite butterfly, which I sometimes see in the South of France, but they never sat down long enough for me to capture them properly! Thank you for doing it for me Wink

What a joy it must have been to see this newly emerged specimen looking so pristine and fresh as a daisy, beautifully captured and dedicated to Carol G who is missed on here.
