Comma butterfly
[Macro images of a comma butterfly from the side, wings partially open, with its brilliant orange and black colour scheme & scalloped edges in view.]

I was getting a bit worried that the oregano and lavendar were in bloom and I had yet to see many butterflies in our Worcestershire garden. Today, though, I saw three cabbage whites, a very tattered small tortoiseshell, two skippers and two speckled woods. This was a tremendous relief. I also disturbed quite a number of white plume moths whilst clearing out weeds. They all flitted into the hedgerow, which I left untouched, so I'm hopeful they weren't too put out.

Those scalloped edges are so interesting.

We put out a milkweed plant among our balcony potted garden but have yet to see any butterflies. The hummingbird also doesn't seem to be paying attention compared to the feeder.
