Wooow, such an amount of beautiful butterflies on one plant! And you were just there at the right time to film them. Wonderful!

Hello, barbara, and a warm welcome to you again. I was so pleased to see the butterflies here today. I had almost given up hope that they would appear this year after all the rain we have had during the summer. Usually we have many of the different kinds fluttering around, but, though not quite so many as in previous years, I was, nevertheless, just as excited :)

It does look like that they have all been waiting and once the conditions have been right all appeared, good job that your Inula dasies are open to give them some food.

Cheers Mark

A warm welcome to you, Mark. I was so glad the flower-heads hadn't gone over, as they had been open in full flower for a few weeks at that point :)
