Hi Tim. Good to see you uploading again. The EPZ butterfly season has truly begun now! Smile

You have captured the wing detail perfectly here. I expect that things are coming out earlier than usual with the unusually warm weather down there this year? I'm sure you'll be posting a mirriad of species soon to make me wish I was there again this year!
