Yesterday I spotted a lone cleopatra enjoying the bougainvillea in the garden, I was so pleased to see her, there have been very few here this year.

A somewhat magnificent trio of images each depicting this beautifully captured 'Cleopatra' enjoying a spot of lunch on your equally impressive 'Bougainvillea'. The pin sharp focusing has allowed me to sit and explore every millimetre of this delightful, and rather unique species. Brilliant.
