Love the notion that they butterflies are drinking beer. We have no butterflies here with quite the wow factor these guys possess!


AhA!!!! I saw this butterfly huddle too and I was wondering what they were doing! Thanks!! Great pictures :)


This is interesting to know! I love the photo of the yellow bucket in the sand! I also love all of your lady beetles! You seem to have quite a variety. The butterflies are beautiful. xx


Margie, I love your yellows.


You're too funny :-) Lovely sunshiny yellows!


Oh my those butterflies are lovely. What a fantastic group of yellows you have. Thanks for bringing the sunshine to us!

Now that's the first time I've seen such a gathering of male butterfly !!! What a great capture of this ... memorable moment ! ;-)
The other yellow photos are awesome too ! Love the yellow ladybug on the buttercup !

beautiful! I love that one of the yellow bucket at the beach : )

We have many swallow tail butterflies (and other species too!) here that do the same thing... only I had no idea that it was just the males that do it! Thanks for sharing!

I liked the yellow bucket too!
Great info re: the puddle club. I'll have to watch for one.


Ha! I got a good chuckle from the puddling/beer analogy. Fascinating! What a great photo op. Have a lovely week. Tammy


Love your analogy! Made me smile.


Think they'd let an old crone in the club? I'd love to drink a beer in their environs which you photograph so beautifully!

I am never too old to learn something new! I did not know that a group of butterflys gatered like that was called a Puddle Club. (
Love the analogy with the beer drinkers.) :)

Leonie @ MissLeonie.nl

I've never seen butterflies do that before! How curious. Their colours are amazing too - and your photos really bring out their beauty. Thank you :)

...Who here now wants to start their very own puddle club? ;)
