A Welcome Guest To The Garden !



Seen in the garden this week, a lovely Speckled Wood butterfly, which did stay still just long enough for me to run indoors and get my camera :-)
These brown butterflies are particularly interesting as they do not feed from flowers, but on aphid honeydew.
And yes, I do have a lot of aphids in the garden.....the joys of refusing to spray pesticides on our apple and plum trees.
