Lovely, my favourite butterfly - I wanted put a buddleia in the gardens downstairs, but couldn't find a space in a sunny spot, only in shade, and the butterflies prefer the flowers to be in sun.

what a shame bamboo, could you have budleia buzz anywhere, i have two and small enough to fit somewhere and still have large flowers for butterflies ;o)

Not sure - if something dies over winter, maybe, I've managed to stuff it to the gunnels already, lol!

Lovely photo Sandra, did it stay still and pose for you? I've been trying to take pics of bees who just won't! LOL

lol bamboo ;o))
lol lily i find peacocks do stay still unlike some butterflies which you chase for hours and just get a blurrr lol, bees can be a pain to ;o)

Bee's are harder than butterflies as so small and camera struggles to focus on them. This is a Red Admiral butterfly (courtesy of Gina). She knows her butterflies thats for sure! ;-)

yes they are steve and sorry but this is a peacock, red admiral is darker and has orange and white markings, no eyes on wings, sorry Gina, look red admiral up steve you will see the difference ,http://www.dgsgardening.btinternet.co.uk/butterflyredadmiral.htm

It is definitely a Peacock, Steve - Red Admiral doesn't look anything like the same, doesn't have those wonderful "drops of water" eyes on the wings.

thanx bamboo ;o))

Now I know my favourite butterfly when I see it, San, as well as I know my own name, lol.

Hey, don't shoot the messenger!! lol

29 Jul, 2010

 

That's not shooting the messenger, Steve! But didn't want you walking around thinking this was a Red Admiral, lol
