Small Copper butterfly.


Small Copper butterfly.

This very pretty little fellow danced around my Asters this afternoon - he wouldn't open his wings until he was too far away to get a photo, though!

I hadn't seen one before - I had to look him up in my book. He's very bright and pretty...or she...;-)

No, I've never seen one. We seem to only get peacocks, admirals and cabbage whites, but I love them anyway! This one is stunning!

We get quite a few different ones, and they're around at the moment. I do love to see them. :-)

Me too. They are very precious insects. I had to rescue one from the greenhouse this morning...always tricky to catch them!

Yes - OH does it. I'm always worried that H. will catch them. He chases flies!

btw, I've just looked and they have 'monch' at Crocus, so it's now on my wishlist!

I should hope they would, Karen!

lol! I thought, knowing you, it would be a really rare one and I'd never find it!

Nope. Not this time! :-))))))))

I had to put this photo in my blog - it's the only photo of one I've managed to get! I have seen him around this week - but not before.

Thanks, Fluff. :-))
