I think this is a Wall Butterfly, but I'm not expert, so if anyone can correct me, please do. Another image from my trip to the local pool with my Sony DT 50mm f1.8 strapped to the camera, love the sharp images it gets and the great shallow depth of field.

Thanks for looking

Steve

Thanks for the correction, I did google it, but there are so many different varieties it was almost impossible to figure it out.

LOL, I did exactly the same thing, about a week ago I saw pretty much the self same shot and thought, that looks bloomin' familiar! Obviously a common butterfly/weed combination.
