Dittrichia viscosa, otherwise known as aromatic inula or sticky fleabane, is a common plant throughout the Mediterranean. It is a very tough plant, very resistant to adverse conditions, and is an important food for the caterpillars of certain butterflies and moths. Despite the fresh-looking green colour of its leaves and its attractive inflorescence, this plant is sticky and has a certain smell that most people find unpleasant. It contains an essential oil and has been used in traditional medicines since ancient times, especially as an astringent. A well known Catalan proverb reads…..the grapes are ripe when the yellow fleabane blooms.
V's 1-7 are various butterflies and critters that I photographed during a half hour walk through this meadow, V.8 is a montage of all the butterflies seen and captured enjoying the inula.

The bee image too is lovely - you just make it look so easy!!

What...an amazing...upload! First off, very interesting info about the inula, Carol. Second, it seems almost a shame to lump all these together 'cos so many of these deserve their own airing, IMHO.

Incredible captures these are and of course the montage is stun-ning. I have to give an extra WOW to V3.

Thanks for this treat for our eyes SmileSmile
