Mum and I had just been saying that we haven't seen any butterflies this year, when three of these wee fellas came by to visit:
We weren't sure what type they were, so I fetched a chart to check. Soon, one of our visitors took an interest in it;
After a while we left the chart on the ground to see where they would land;
They were Red Admirals, by the way, and yes, they did sit on their own portrait for a while! Maybe they were looking for girlfriends :)
This went on for a good half hour, then they all flew off. We haven't seen any others since. Strange! But beautiful, magical....
