My favourite U.S species (so far!). Also the equal smallest species in North America (with Western Pygmy-Blue) - about half the size of a Small Blue.

More delectable species on display in that sequence, Celery.

I'm sure you must get bored by most of the UK's native butterflies?

Well David, I certainly not bored of UK species (I don't think you ever forget your first love :wink: ) but I do get bored of waiting for them to appear again. Which is why most of my foreign species shots are from holidays taken out-of-season.

I find nothing raises the spirits more than a bit of sunshine, warm temperatures and the flitting of butterflies during the depths of what would be the English winter. :)

Well, what can I say?

You must build up a fair few air miles, Celery? I agree with your statement regarding having to wait for UK species to emerge. In a perfect world we would all indulge in a little 'globe-trotting' to keep us sane in the northern hemisphere's winter months.

Thanks for sharing. You've shown us a wonderful selection of butterfly species.

Thanks David :)

And yes, I do feel guilty about all the travelling - but I guess we're all a little culpable there just as soon as we get in the car to go to the local nature reserve...

...and I might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb :)

Spent some time tidying up the garden yesterday (Sunday 2nd April) in the company of 2 Small Torts, a male and a female Brimstone, a Comma, a Peacock and this rather lovely male Orange Tip.

First Holly Blues of the year in my garden yesterday. Two males - this one keen to keep in tip-top condition for the pending arrival of the female of the species... :wink:
