Quite a variety of butterflies have made a welcome return to my garden, and I was delighted to see a brimstone on the bougainvillea again.

The yellows of this species shows up so well against the colour of the bougainvillea: excellent set of shots, Carol.
Nice to see you still have 'flowers' (if I may call the bougainvillea that) in the garden as here with all the wind, rain and cold temps. everything is finished for thus year.
