More garden visitors. It's very busy this time of year. I'm expecting the parakeets any time now.

Further to my earlier post (the orange-headed bluetit) here is a snap of it on the phormium. I say snap because I didn't have time to extend the lens properly - stupid, really, because it's preset at the right FL but I'd been photographing something else and had reduced it - could have been so much betterSad.

Mr Fox enjoying the sunshine on my lawn. No doubt he left me a little present as well. Smile

Hah, our garden (well, the front lawn of our block of flats) is full of Fox and Cubs...

Sadly, your link takes me to some orange flowers.

Found a strangely coloured Red admiral (at least thats what I think it is) flitting about the garden but could not get a shot of the upper wings.
Never seen this before.140396_1625849965.jpg

What's going on in my garden ? Rain. The wettest July I can remember. At least I dont have to water.

I must have collected up about 30 slugs from my lawn last night; there was so much rain, they all came out. I wonder where they all go during the day.
We have a very scruffy piece of land over the back of us, so I just tipped them all over the fence. I expect they'll find their way home though - they're clever like that. I just don't want the cat eating them or bringing any in on his coat.

I gather them up when I can and give them to the chickens.

My Dwarf Buddleia is covered in a variety of butterflies this afternoon (even a Painted Lady, the first I've seen this year). To my amazement I saw a Silver-washed Fritillary trying to mate with a Comma!!! The Comma was totally ignoring it and carrying on feeding but the Fritillary was getting more and more desperate! Has anyone else heard/seen such a thing?

Never seen that Karen.
The butterflies are starting to make an appearance here now the sun is shining (this beauty was captured this afternoon).
