Wild Violets

By HobbitDave
Nice to see so many of these coming out around here. I learnt last year that the Silver Washed Fritillary butterfly lays its eggs on their leaves, so fingers crossed for a good year for them this year.

These two images are for Christina.

Good times to all,
Dave.

Super presentation. I would have been tempted to remove the dead bits though. Good luck with the flutterbys.Wink

Two beauties, Dave, especially like the angle of capture in V.1. Enchanting flowers, haven't seen any here yet. Carol
