a little garden visitor

Spotted this common butterfly resting on the She-Oak spindles on the edge of the reserve, unfortunately it flew off before I could properly focus but its colour is lovely and I like the way it nestles amoung the spindles with their matching orange ends.

    I love the Monarch Butterfly but unfortunately they are not as common around here as they used to be.
