Oh Sherry, that first picture is a perfect fall photo.
What a clear, vivid pic of the red-spotted purple butterfly. He's really gorgeous!
Sounds similar to our great day...temps above 70 after a stretch of 60's. It's great that the butterflies enjoy the apples too!
Sherry you must be so quietly as a cat to be able to make this pictures of the butterflys. I love the clear septembrer light of the first picture.
Great photos as always. The butterflies must really enjoy those apples, so sweet, and it must give them energy.A good reason to leave a few windfalls on the ground for them.
Lovely photos and a great celebration of the wonderful weather we've been having.
Dear Lisa,Thank you.I really liked it too. I think everything looks better with a butterfly friend.Sherry
Dear Wendy,Red-spotted Purples are very pretty.I love seeing them flit about in the gardens.Sherry
Dear Chris,These perfect days are few and far between. I tried to stay out the entire day, just coming in for a drink of water. There are many butterflies that like rotting fruit. No one lives in my neighbor's house right now. I am enjoying the apples on the ground for the first year ever! The bees and deer and butterflies are also having a grand time.Sherry
Dear Belen,The butterflies are so happy to have the sweet apple juice they do not notice me. I do walk slowly up to them so as not to scare them.Sherry
Dear Shelia,It is a very good idea to leave some apples or pears to rot for the butterflies and bees.Thank you.Sherry
Dear Wren,I bet if I sat near my neighbor's tree I would see some fruit eating birds come too. I set fruit out for the Orioles and I see many birds in the spring enjoying grape jelly. I think I will set up a chair on the next pretty day and see who does come to the apple tree.Sherry
