Butterfly on the Buddleja



The first thing I saw Yesterday was the Butterflys, flying around the Buddleja on the curved border by the main entrance building. Tens of them flitting about, diving in the pollen, and sunbathing on the floor.
Back to work for me so more Harlow Carr posts tonight....
Ps Added on Sunday: Kylee made me do a google search. This butterfly is a Small Tortoise shell.Its still pretty! The first photo has a Peacock Butterfly and a small Tortoise shell in it.

Do your Red Admirals look different than ours? This one doesn't have the red bands on it like ours. (http://www.ivyhall.district96.k12.il.us/4TH/KKHP/1insects/bugpix/0redadMM.JPEG)

It's a pretty butterfly, though, and a great photo!
