I've never had so many butterflies in the garden as in our garden in Germany. Maybe it's because of the lovely purple buddleia bushes we have here acting like a butterfly magnet, or maybe it's the warm weather (32 degrees in the shade today!), or maybe our cats just aren't hunting them like they used to in England (again, because of the heat).
Anyway, here are some photos I took today of just a few of them (I am not going to try and name them, though I am at least certain of the peacock and the painted lady ones! If anyone wants to try, you are more than welcome. p.s. click on a photo to biggify):
