Our Buddleias are still in bud and the butterflies are just loving them, mind you we have 6 Buddleias and they will flower until October (fingers crossed), the Butterflies will of gone by then (to cold) but the shrubs will help feed othe critters during hte winter...........GrinGrinGrinGrin

That's just superb macro!Smile
This is what I have just thought about, Adrian: England is not Africa, the cold winds will come soon and the butterflies fly far away to sleep or ... It will be very difficult to take macro. I hope you were joking about your favorite gadget ... I'm sure you guessed what I mean...WinkLol
