A Large White Butterfly taken in my garden today. Quite a few have damaged wings now but this one is in perfect condition.

Hope you like it.
All comments welcome.
I am loving my new camera.
Thank you for looking in.

Excellent, the DoF of the flowers draws the eye to the butterfly beautifully.

I wasn't going to mention the plant because I wasn't sure how to spell it, but will accept Patrick's version. This is the plant to get your butterflies on. This is a beauty.
