happiness is... photo Friday

Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

Nathaniel Hawthorne 1804-1864

I took these photos a few days ago in Nice city centre. The butterflies are Geranium bronzes Cacyreus marshalli -that i've written about before here
They were feeding on lavendar bushes and seemed to be ignoring the geraniums.-however i didn't see any caterpillars

I am seeing more this year than last year than last year- or maybe i am just attuned to them

Love the photos! I'm finding I see more different kinds of butterfly now I'm walking a dog regularly in the fields. I keep seeing ones I don't see in the garden and having to rudh home and look in my Readers Digest butterfly book to see what they are.
