Butterflies in Love



As part of the 'kiasu game, I went in search of more butterflies in the garden and the hard disk.


Plain Tiger Butterflies dated on plain compost.


Common Grass Yellow Butterflies tied the knot beneath common Costus leaves.


Another pair of lovely Common Grass Yellow Butterflies preferred the mulberry leaves.


A pair of unidentified maroon moths at the lemon tree.


2 beautiful White Antennae Wasp Moth surround themselves with wild flowers during their first date.


As this couple became tattered, they hung around tattered leaves.


Since I cannot beat Andrea in the quantity of butterflies she captured in a single photo, I resorted to posting of butterflies in love.

Do you find bugs in love in your garden?

Kanak of Nature Rambles did.

1 hour later...

Joyce of My Little Potted Garden is showing off GOLDEN pupae!
You got to check them out.
She even has the pupae in 4 different colours, all produced by Butterflies in Love.

  1. Great photos One! I risked being cut from the internet just to see your post immediately. How so beautiful. I think i am already backing off the game as i cannot beat these shots. I haven't even seen those yellows in that position, i always see them just fluttering! And your holed leaves with heart designs on them are really very creative. I cowtow already to you in this area!....But who knows, i might later find them too, especially now that rains already come. Wait for mine! ! ! I will show you how they deliver their babies. LOL.

I wonder if you will also like my address to you, based from the last kiasu result 'Dear Mating Champion'.:D BTW, what happened to the LOL category, i stopped when you are at #3!
