1 I used to love finding fairies in the garden when I was a little girl and never being told that they were Clematis seed heads floating on the breeze. Today I found one in a bucket of water and was delighted with the subsequent unexpected photo.
2 The very last flower on the Pelargonium was caught in the sunshine today with the anthers making such a delicate shadow.
3 Of many photos taken trying to catch the fluttering butterfly, I eventually managed one as it took nectar from the lovely Heliotrope, otherwise known as Cherry Pie because of its delicious fragrance.

Gorgeous shot of the Clematis fairy, and I’m somehow reminded of Douglas Adams.

I like your three things today. The butterfly is a handsome speciman.
I clicked on the first picture to get a bigger and better look. You have some mosquito larvae in the water in the lower left quadrant? http://www.mosquitoes.org/LifeCycle.html#anchor36469

I’m thinking I should scoop them up and dispose of them before they hatch…. Thank you for the heads up! 🙂 Glad you liked today’s photos 🙂
