Couldn't resist posting a few pictures of this pretty little book I bought at a tiny market the other day. The names of the butterflies are so nice: the Purple Emperor butterfly, the Pale Clouded Yellow butterfly, the Bath White butterfly, the Painted Lady.

The man I bought it from asked me if I was going to try to spot them in my garden - here's hoping I do!

I do like the orange tip butterfly. I not really a butterfly spotter, or birds or anything like that. I just like to watch them. I've been to a butterfly farm I think once in my life but I imagine it's nicer with a fancy book to identify them all.
Super cute! It look quite old too.
