This type of butterfly comes back every year to this same spot to lay its eggs, then I find them lying, faded and torn beside the rocks. They supposedly live for such a short time before their demise. A pretty little insect. the eggs are laid amongst the 'baby tears' ground cover.
With much thanks and appreciation to dear Richard for his spotlight.
