Jolie réunion de papillons.
Lisl: Aren't they delightful?
On dirait un corps de ballet en pleine évolution...peut-etre le lac des cygnes en version papillon ?

Rendez-vous galant
Lisl: Rendez-vous for sharing
A fine bevy of butterflies- or whatever the collective may be.
Lisl: I had a look -it can be swarm , flight, rabble, flutter kaleidoscope, wing, rainbow or flock!
What a gorgeous gathering. I like to imagine them dancing to the music I am listening to from my blog.
Lisl: I amso pleased it makes you happy, Mary
The gang's all here

We have these (greenish) butterflies, gathering on what a cow left behind. In the Kalahari area there are these stark yellow butterflies, who love to hug cow patties.
Lisl: Lots of nutrients in the dung
That is an absolutely amazing image Lisl.
Lisl: It was an amazing sight, too, Brian!

What a find! A lovely picture Lisl.
Lisl: I have never seen them like this in the UK, Anne, thank you
Are they having a squabble Lisl.
Lisl: What about that for a collective noun, Chad - a squabble of butterflies?

It looks like square dance... this is quite the family.. Great picture.
Lisl: All out for what they could get, thank you, Astrid
I've never seen a sight like that.
Lisl: I haven't in this country, Tom. I have other pictures of other species, mainly fritillaries, doing the same
