I took this picture of a Marbled White Butterfly feasting upon blackberry nectar in my garden. Brambles (Rubus fruticosus) are wonderful plants for wildlife, their flowers sustain bees and butterflies, their blackberries feed dormice, voles, as well as badgers, and birds. Plus, the caterpillars of Grizzled Skipper, Green Hairstreak, and Holly Blue Butterflies, Buff Arches Moths, Peach Blossom Moths, Brown-tail Moths, Common Footman Moths, and other moth caterpillars eat this plant’s leaves.
