It has been a while since the last time butterflies visited my back yard. I’ve almost grown used to their absence. So it was a nice surprise when a small kaleidoscope (a.k.a a rabble or swarm) of butterflies visited yesterday evening.
I looked online and was able to identify them; they were Red Admiral butterflies.
Some of the fruit I bagged on the tree have dropped off. I don’t know why. It could have been the windy days and nights we had recently. I suppose the bag could have acted as a sail and magnified the wind effect. It could have been that those particular fruit were weak to begin with. I know it was not the bag because bagging fruit on the tree it’s an established and proven method of pest control. None of the websites that showed this method reported this problem.
Over and out.
