Two excellent photos Carol ! I can size them by comparing them to the size of the bougainvilla's little white flower. I love V1 where the one wing casts a shadow on the other - so cool Smile

They even have a hint of toning colour matching that Bougainvillea which
always reminds us of Greece or Europe! Ah sunshine!
