Waking up to wildlife

Always the best way to start the day. This red admiral butterfly was enjoying the sunshine this morning when I opened the curtains.  As they are cold-blooded they need the warmth of the sun to warm the muscles they need for flight. That’s why you don’t see many flying on the cooler days, they are saving their energy under a leaf somewhere.

 

That’s why I built them a butterfly beach. A little somewhere to warm their wings in the morning.
