We often see the plain green types in the UK but I don't know how many other varieties we might have.
Yet again, two super shots, Carol.
Brilliant work.

Top macrowork Carol, as Tomcat has already stated the weather forecast is all over the shop at present, it was meant to be awful today but in fact it was ok and I managed to get out this afternoon on what is most likely to be my last butterflying expedition of 2013
