Front Yard Nature Show

One of the previous owners of this house planted several flowering plants around the property. In the front, next to the driveway, is a big, purple buddleja. Every time we have visitors they are amazed with just how many butterflies (and bees) are sipping at the nectar. I've taken out my camera a few times and managed to snap some reasonably good photos, though with the availability I'm betting (hoping) there will be better ones in the future!



For more Best Shot Monday, visit Tracey at Mother May I.

What a great capture. Every time I grab the camera to catch a butterfly they are gone before I can hit the shutter.

We had buddleias aplenty in the UK and they were known as 'butterfly bushes' but I don't remember seeing a single butterfly let alone capturing one as well as you have here! Good work!
