|1./2.: Painted Lady|
|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.
