Something in Common

Some pretty butterfly photos for you today.
 These are all 'common' butterflies. The first one is a 'Common Jezabel', photographed feeding on a red bottlebrush shrub in the Cania National Park.

This one too is a 'Common Jezabel' on a tropical spider lily in my garden.


And lastly a 'Common Aeroplane' butterfly.
Named because of the way it holds it's wings flat when in flight.

We have so lucky to have lots of butterflies visiting our garden. I do have more photos ..... and will post some from time to time.
Do you have butterflies in your garden?

Cheerio for now,

Hi Sandi, I love butterflies. I've already seen some out on our walks this year, but not in the garden.
