Flower Photo: Butterfly Bush in Bridgewater

Purple Butterfly Bush Photo by Aquariann

Black Friday fell on my dad's birthday, thus I hopped over to his house instead of your blogs last week. But I'm back with another beautifully imperfect butterfly! This one I circled around a butterfly bush in Bridgewater, the same park I photographed a pretty pink blossom on my first trip to Shenandoah Valley in Virginia.

In case you're like me and didn't get your holiday shopping done already, I'm picking this Friday's features from Handmade on Amazon!

Featured Flower Picks:

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.

Flower Friday

Other flower hops where I've planted my post this week include Floral Friday Fotos, I Heart Macro, My Weekend Flower, Saturday Show Off and Today's Flower.


  1. a different kind of butterfly I can´t recall seeing before. Looks old and worn but still beautiful on the flower.

  2. He's certainly been a bit battered but still soaking up the sun & nectar!

  3. A lovely specimen indeed!! Love the bokeh lighting up the background too!! Happy Birthday to your Dad=)!!

  4. In germany is allready winter, this bush is now asleep ;-)
    Great shot!
    Have a nice weekend ... Frauke

  5. Wow! what a fab capture never seen one like that before :-)

  6. Love the lavendar leather necklace!
    Have a great week!

  7. Is it a butterfly or a moth? It has strange wings...

    1. I'm not sure because the wings are so worn, but the closest I found when googling was a butterfly called the Spotted Black Crow.

  8. A stunning picture. It does look like a moth, but could totally be a butterfly. Very pretty.

  9. Never seen anything like that. Strange!

  10. Lovely picture. Very interesting butterfly/moth.

  11. Great shot!
    Thank you for linking up with the Floral Friday Fotos meme.

  12. Beautiful butterfly but very poor because he has damaged wings !
