It won't be long until Mothman will be joining us.
Such different colouration and markings to what we are used to seeing here.

I think it's remarkable that you have taken such good photos with your phone. They are very good. Are Portugese insects very slow/lazy or are you super-patient?

Just back from cycling along the coast of Portugal, Lots of Insects butterflies and moths and Hover flies. Many allotments along the coast you should see the size of their onions and Tomatoes, Ill post some pics when I sort them out.
You should post your pics on Insect and invertebrates Ireland Facebook page or Dave Grundys face book page hes the man for exotic stuff like this. Think last one is swallowtail.

With you there greengage, I think the last one is a Swallowtail Also the one above is, I think, a Fritillary, but don't know what sort.

When RTE were in Letterkenny to film the Nationwide piece on the Tidy Towns presentation last month they came to the An Taisce butterfly garden. Some of us went there first for a last minute cleanup and we were delighted to find a Painted Lady in residence. Of course, she had moved on by the time the cameras arrived!
Yours truly appeared briefly, wielding Felcros in the general direction of some honeysuckle, in the piece that went to air!

Thank you, TW. What was really good was to see my homeplace, on TV, looking so very well. It was a moment to reflect on the huge hard work of many hundreds of people over the last 40 years that has transformed this town. It was not a pretty place when i arrived here in 1974!
To know that ive had some small part in this is both rewarding and humbling. And to be able to acknowledge the contributions of several vital people who are no longer with us was important. One of those now has a lovely small public garden named after him. Another, who died recently, will be comemmorated in the butterfly garden i designed for An Taisce.
Plants, gardens and gardeners have been central to what is best in the development of this town.

The same goes for towns and cities around the world - very civilizing. It shows people care about where they live and think about the future.
