I’ve been waiting for these tiny butterflies to appear, but this is the only one I have seen this year, and then for only a minute or two. Then Hurricane Bertha’s tail-end arrived and the butterflies have all but disappeared except for the occasional large white fluttering round. The flowers this one was visiting are tiny; and the butterfly looks small, even on them.

Lovely photographs. We have had a lot of wind recently and I think hurricane Bertha’s perturbations must have reached us too. Amelia
I hadn’t seen one since last year – I’d forgotten how minuscule these are. Those are very small flowers in the first place… Strange to be visited briefly by a storm that passed over my alter locus Abaco the week before – I hope it wasn’t personal!
