DUTCH BUTTERFLIES.

Today I share summer photos of our garden. I tried to photograph the white butterflies on our lavender. I think you aren't surprised when I tell you how difficult it can be to capture the most beautiful (and constantly moving) insects 😊

BLURRY

I could not get close to the lavender bushes. So, I had to zoom in and that made the photos a bit blurry



I just cycled to a butterfly bush along the roadside. My husband had pointed me to that bush; he had seen many, many butterflies on it. I saw the bush with its masses of blossoms. Wonderful. Do you love the  butterfly-bushes? It provides nectar to adult butterflies. This sort (below) is naturalized in most cities of central and southern Europe, where it can spread on open lands and in gardens.

VLINDERSTRUIK

Vanmiddag fietste ik naar het eind van de straat. Mijn man zei dat daar een struik stond waar het wemelde van de vlinders en hommels. En ja hoor. Hij had gelijk. Wat mooi! In Nederland worden vlinderstruiken vooral bezocht door algemeen voorkomende dagvlinders, zoals Atalanta, Witjes, Kleine Vos, Distelvlinder en Gehakkelde Aurelia. De struik is zeer waardevol als voedselbron voor deze typische tuinvlinders.





I also saw large bumblebees and busy bees. Fortunately, they only paid attention to the flowers! I shall show them later.
