I agree Amy, wonderful photo Gee, beautiful colouring too, says it all about summer and the one we're having this year!

I must admit to finding a few little caterpillars on some plants and I have carefully relocated them over the fence, along with the leaf :)

Thanks, Janey. It really is a summer to remember, isn't it, but I wonder if we will when the cold weather comes :)

You never know what a caterpillar might turn into, so it is a good idea to relocate them to where they might still thrive. Lovely butterfly picture Gee.

Nice Tortoiseshell butterfly Gee, I have had lots in my garden this year as I did last year. They along with the bees seem to be very attracted to my Escallonia. I actually captured a Silver Studded blue butterfly in my garden this year which apparently is very rare.

Thanks Fran, Treetop. It's been another buttefly day here today, lovely sunshine but not too hot. Just off to take a look at your Silver Studded butterfly, Treetop - not heard of that before :)
