Butterfly what/what on/where/when?
I was thinking of starting a thread (maybe a bit late for this year but if people have taken any photos, or can just remember) as a reference to what butterflies people have seen and what on, perhaps as a suggestion to what flowers will work best in a particular area for next years planting.
Small Tortoiseshell/Devils Bit Scabious//Lancashire/End Sep 2015
I'm massively impressed at how these plants are doing, they're always covered in bees but yesterday I got a nice surprise as two tortoiseshells were using them at the same time. We've had no rain for over a week but these plants are like a filling station to all pollen and nectar gatherers. They were ignoring nearby plants such as Sedum Stonecrop, Verbana (still in flower but nothing using it now).
I'd welcome more sightings, next year I'm going to focus on Butterflies equally as bees, although I suspect a lot of the plants they love will be the same.
