10 feet of wall space sunning the other day as well

I have been noticing all season that relatively few Small Tortoiseshell
(Aglais urticae~) butterflies have been around. Yesterday however
I observed around 17 feeding on several clumps of Sedum spectabile in a
sunurban roadside garden in Neath, South Wales.
This was a great thing to see.

individual of a race of living things breathes no more another heaven and
another earth must pass before such a one can be again." William Beebe
