Returning to the butterflies again, as there isn't much else around at present. This large white was relaxing in the sunshine on the oleander outside my front porch.

Good morning, Carol: I am still up but heading of to bed now, but so nice to see these 3 fine detailed shots before so doing.

More shots to add to your ever growing lexicon of all things creeping, crawling and flying, Carol.
It's a huge body of high quality work.

I quite like version 2, but I think version 3 is my favourite today - you've managed to isolate the butterfly brilliantly!
