Last Year’s Butterflies

This Year’s been sad in terms of butterflies. Spring was fine when they all appeared back from the winter, however, all summer it was too wet and cold, so now in mid-September when they should be hovering about the asters or grounded fruits in neighbouring gardens (my plum and apple trees still have to recover from last year’s deer attack), hardly any of these light-winged insects can be found. So I went through the photos my daughter made last year when we were walking through clouds of butterflies at this time of the year. Here’s a selection:
