Butterflies are all around Durranbah

Jez’s Fan of…..#59

I am a fan of Butterflies but who isn’t?
There has been many many butterflies around my garden for quite a while. The Lemon Migrants were here in numbers for almost eight weeks and even now there are a few still here. There are some I haven’t managed to get a photo of in the past few weeks, little Line Blues, a white and black one who is too fast, perhaps a Yellow Albatross and other small butterflies who don’t sit for long.

Here is the butterflies I have managed to photograph. I hope you enjoy the butterflies of Durranbah.

    1. Things are getting better Ann-Christine. A few more flowers are appearing as well as insects. Only a few birds around but they have a better forest to forage now

  1. Thank you so much for sharing these glorious beings! Spring must be coming here soon, the buds tell me so. And what a lovely song by Kacey Musgrave, “I was hiding in doubt until you brought me out of my chrysalis” We are here for each other in ways we may never perceive! You’re lifting me up.
