A strange thing happened this morning. I saw this lovely butterfly have a fight with a wasp in the garden. Then as if to calm down it sat in the shade for a while just long enough for me to take a couple of photographs. Not very good at identifying different butterfly species I'm unsure if it is a rarity. However I have never seen one like this before and have no idea what type it is or where it might have come from. Luckily for me it passed through my garden... life can be full of pleasant surprises.
