Drama Queen

We've had a bit of a heat wave again for a few days; followed today by quite a dramatic thunderstorm. Luckily I did not have to go out in it! There was no power outage either (where I live), but I did disconnect myself from the internet for a while (i.e. turned off the router) - while the lightning and thunder was really close...

Back on Monday, I did go out for a walk (even though it was really too hot for my liking). Then I met this Peacock butterfly, graciously spreading its wings and displaying all its beautiful colours while resting among the yellow flowers of a Dasiphora fruticosa (cinquefoil) bush. (I do hope it found somewhere dry to hide today.)

  1. that is just about the most gorgeous butterfly I have ever seen. a new one for me. fantastic foto!!!

  2. It's colours contrast spectacularly with the flowers.

  3. Oh my goodness, what a stunning picture! It deserves to be on the cover of a magazine! I have never even seen a real one, much less gotten to snap it.

  4. We're still in the middle of our third (or fourth?) small heatwave of this summer, with temperatures at around 30C during the day and rather high humidity in the air. It is nothing like the seemingly endless tropical heat we've had for weeks and weeks last summer, though, and I wish this one would last a bit longer - autumn will be here soon enough, much as I love that season.
    The butterfly was posing for you, how generous!
