Award Shortlist   


By Rachel99
A change from bees - the buddleia is earning its keep by attracting the butterflies now. Mostly white ones but this one landed this morning - eventually! I think it's a peacock but I know if I am wrong, someone will put me right. ONe of our prettiest butterflies I think. The potatoes are taking a bit of a bashing Wink

This is just as it came out of the camera except for a small crop.

I am in and out at the moment as I have my mum staying for a couple of weeks, but I will catch up later. As always many thanks for all kind comments on previous uploads.
