I think it has been a great year for Butterflies.............if my Buddleia are anything to go by (and other plants such as the Verbena), so this lovely Brimstone is leading the plaudits.........GrinGrinGrin

My thanks to myrab, JuBarney, M_squared and Brian65 for their lovely User Awards on the Chiffy...........much valued and appreciated........GrinGrinGrinGrin

The Brimstone is settled on the Aster, not a Buddleia, I just mentioned the Budds as they are the most popular for the Butterflies............GrinGrinGrin

They are such stunning butterflies, Julia, and so well camouflaged, looking lust like a leaf, a beautiful image. Carol

Outstanding detail and colours Julia.
I agree fully about this year's. It has been a most enjoyable season photographing them along with many friends on EPZ.

Oh what a pretty site. And such a lovely colour combination. I think I must get some mauve buddleia next year as the butterflies don't seem to be too impressive with my white variety.

That's such a lovely sentiment, I hope they all hear it, and perhaps this little creature can wing the message to the rest.

Magnificent shot of a really stupid butterfly, Julia.
Why be camouflaged as a leaf and sit about on a purple flower?

Don't think this image could be better.
