Picture book perfect Jenn.
The Bridesmaid Astilbe is such a beautiful perch for another butterfly I've never hears of.
The butterfly is displayed so perfectly - almost like he/she knows the world is looking.

Nothing like them Ade, these have much more striking and heavy black markings than our PBF's, methinks you've been at the cider again old butt!Tongue A splendid close up of this beautifully marked butterfly Jenn, its colours and wing patterns have been superbly recorded
