Porto Botanical Gardens

A story behind: Last Thursday after lunch we went to see Porto Botanical Gardens, located not very far from our home.
The Gardens were set up by Passos Manuel in 1837 on the ground of the extinct Carmelite Convent.
That Thursday the weather was fine and while walking I spotted this colorful butterfly on the Lavender field. To tell you the truth, this is my first ever butterfly photo.
