Welcome to my ecological garden in the tropics. Hope you find peace and tranquility here.
Common to you...not to me. Beautiful.No clue what Lemons and Crimson Roses are...must look them up.
I find it really hard to take photos of butterflies. They fly away just when I want to get a good picture. Yours are lovely
Beautiful photos of your Dark Blue Tiger! You sure have been successful now! ;>)
Patsi:Thanks for stopping by and writing a comment. Ian:Thanks , Ian. I have become dark, chasing the butterflies in the sun!Carol: Sometimes, the butterflies take pity on me and linger so that I can get a shot!
The common names are much easier to remember than the Latin. Many of ours have descriptive names such as the various Swallowtails. Gulf Fritillaries get their name from being similar to the real fritiallaries. Sulphurs are yellow. My fav is the elusive Dogface, whose edges look somewhat like the silhouette of a poodle.Your butterflies are beautiful. It takes incredible patience to photograph them.
That's a beautiful butterfly. I like the blue dots on its wings and body. Most of the time, the butterflies are too fast for me.
What a lovely garden! I can´t even imagine living in a place like that
Nell Jean, You are right. It is easy to remember the common names.Autumn Belle, they are too fast for me too, most of the timeElisa Day, Thank you and welcome to my garden. Please visit again..
Lovely pictures of the butterflies. We have a few pretty varieties in my area, my favourites are the 'black and blue' ones. I'm just not savvy enough to know all of their names :D
