This butterfly landed in my yard today. I have no idea what it is because I've never been too interested in them. But it was about 4 - 5 inches across with wings open.

A beautiful image of a Moth, gorgeous detail and colour throughout. I am sure our resident Ade Osman will be able to put a name to it Sandy...
