Last Butterfly?

When I took this picture on Friday I wondered if this would be the last butterfly I would see this year. As it is I’ve not seen many butterflies. Despite a wonderful year for flowers the lack of butterflies has been dramatic here at the PGT.

I assume that they are still struggling to recover from the severe drought of 2012.
