At last! Managed to capture this elusive butterfly after trying for weeks.

Off to the computer shop today to try and sort out the problem with my pc, hope it's nothing serious, and that I'll be back with you all soon.

These are absolutely stunning, Carol, and I'm so glad your patience was rewarded. I think V1 is my favourite, but V2 appeals to me for its clean background with all attention of the beautiful specimen.
