In case you missed them, Karina shared two beautiful photographs of a Common Blue butterfly in Ireland and Dwight shared images of some wonderful flowers, bees and a variety of butterflies in North Carolina.

It is lovely to see that they, like us here in the Highlands, are seeing more butterflies this year than last year.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday,

with love from Xenia xxx

  1. Beautiful Painted Ladies. I have only seen one this year but most years we don’t see any. I think we are too far west! Many thanks for the Pingback too!

  2. These images are gorgeous Xenia and so well captured with your camera. I love this butterfly and I know they are sometimes not so easy to capture. The flowers are very beautiful as well, lovely colors.
