Gorgeous little creature Carol!
In V2 she looks as if she's just posing for your camera!
Lovely little anttenas and quite spiky legs... Interesting details. IB

Lovely set of close ups Carol. You will probably get a few more butterflies soon. Because I am sure that the lousy wind we are about to get will blow all our remaining ones your way Wink. Moira
