Made a change from the White varieties that seem to be around more than any other Butterflies.

I actually saw a brown one today..probably a Red Admiral, but not sure as it fluttered too fast! Gatekeeepers are lovely!

Karen, in previous years when I have taken part in the Butterfly Count there has been such a variety of them. Almost all Whites this year with not many others :o(

here in new york i also have noticed a decline in butterflies this yr. have seen a few white ones, 1 monarch and a small brown one, usually i have a lot of white ones and occasionally a monarch in the past years, also have not seen a grasshopper in several years? or a praying mantis? i worry also!
