There are still a number of cleopatras flying around, and they love the bougainvillea in my garden.

Stunning work, Carol, and think V3's my fave - although not the dappled light as in V1 & V2, it seems to show up the tones and textures of the wings better Smile

V3 is the pick of this exceptional set Carol, so what is the difference between them and brimstones then? To me they look exactly the same!
