Butterfly Wings


The Only butterfly I managed to photograph perched on the mysterious everlasting flowers, in the Warm Sunlight.
They are Ephemeral, flitting around, landing out of range, then flying off when you attempt to move near them.
I will grow some Butterfly attracting plants, and plants for the caterpillars to feat on before they metamorphosise into this winged garden spirits.
I think it is a Common Cabbage White butterfly. It was beautiful seeing it fly, then land for my photos.
The other butterflys were flying but not landing, as they had pressing engagements in other gardens.
