Wordless Wednesday: Garden Moments

Spotted flitting between the anise hyssop and this aptly named butterfly bush in the herb garden one August day, this beauty is a Red Admirable (or Red Admiral if you must be modern). They are common as the nettles upon which they nectar but I still love those marbled-looking underwings and bright blue spots.

According to Robert Pyle's book, The Butterflies of Cascadia, they also like rotting apples, which means it is probably good that the apple tree has a guardian.

One more bit of pretty after the jump...

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I love good conversations and some great ones take place here in comments. Whether it's an opinion a deep topic or simply a tweak you made to a recipe, we all learn more when additional voices join in.

Comments are moderated for spam so your comment will not appear immediately. Beyond that, however, my policy is to allow open, honest, uncensored feedback and conversation. (You may have no idea how rare this is. I didn't either...) I trust my readers to behave reasonably, they seldom let me down.
