  1. Onneksi olkoon Gunilla! Upeat perhoset ritariperhonen ja viirukiitäjä. Viirukiitäjää ei paljoa Suomessa näe.

  8. Moi. Upeat kuvat. Onko tuossa toiseksi ylimmäisessä kuvaan tullut purjeperhonen. Näyttää kyllä erilaiselta kuin ritariperhonen.

  21. Beautiful butterflies!
    I like thistles though I know they can cause trouble in pastures.

  22. Very pretty, Gunilla!

    I left a bunch of thistles growing outside our place in West Virginia just for the butterflies. (And the yellow finches like them, too.)

  23. Jag var på en guidad tur igår på "fjärilsstigen" i Stora Vika och guiden hade med sig två egenuppfödda makaon-fjärilar, som han släppte ut - otroligt spännande och vackra fjärilar.

  31. I love the colour of the thistles. The Sphinx moths are a beautiful capture!

  32. You know I love roses but nothing more beautiful then wildflowers. I love the butterfly's. I hope they don't forget to visit my garden. I haven't seen only a few butterfly's in Holland. I think it's because of the wet weather we got in Holland.
