Today I saw a painted lady!

 After a night away, we released the cats into the garden!

My favourites are the butterfly (great closeup of colour and pattern) and your beautiful Buster. Very worrying about the ticks though... I must check my Melody.

Great series of shots--looks like the cats are having fun. Lilacs are so yummy smelling, glad you are enjoying them!

Oh I like the Painted Lady and the cats Jen. I would like to see the lilacs all in bloom.

I really enjoyed your pictures. My blog was about butterflys as well.
