Two very impressive and certainly beautiful images of this gorgeous Brimstone Butterfly. I particularly like the contrasting colours Carol.

I can't tell the difference between the male and female.
I knew I've been doing something wrong.

Two beauties Carol - it would be helpful to point out the differences in male and female
to educate us further.
Ben Kiteley (aged 10) pointed out that my Scotch Argus was female and I then discovered had a male in my
very limited butterfly folder.
I love the light in V2.

V2 is double yer moneys worth. Both butterflys are outstanding yet the bloom in V2 is very worthy on its own as well. TG
