Butterflies in the Park in August.

White and a flying bee





















Together with the warm weather some of  the butterflies finally arrived. There is a place in the park called "Rømerhaven" where the gardeners plant some fine beds with perrenials each year. In another section are buddleias and the butterflies love them. There were some of the pretty Painted Lady and lots of Peacocks. The Peacocks are really seen in large numbers this year. I haven't seen many Small Tortoiseshell - and there was no one  that day. There are also lots and lots of the White everywhere. They must fly in millions all over the country. In one photo of the White is a flying bee.
There was a fine little Holly Blue in another section of the garden. The Holly Blue is often prowling around and seen outside its permanent breeding habitat. It has for some years been common in many places in DK.

These are absolutely beautiful, Grethe. May I use one of the holly blue images as a header on my blog, with attribution to you, of course?

Hej Teresa, yes of course you may use it - or whatever you'd like of the butterflies. I'm very glad that you like it.
It's so nice to hear from you.

Thank you! Have you moved to a new place and, if so, how do you like it?

Hej, I have given it up for now. I'm very quick in making plans and the plans were okay, but when I looked at my budget I could not afford it. The deposits for a new flat have become very high. And then my holidays and my camera!! I'll have to wait and see.

Maybe I'll win the lotto today!!

Cheers to you and to dear Buddy too!
