Glass Wing Butterfly

By jove
We had a ride out yesterday to Williamson Park at Lancaster.
We had heard about the Butterfly House there so we decided we had to have a look.
Ooops, wrong time of year, there were only perhaps a dozen or so butterfly's flying around and of those most seemed to stay fairly high up making photographing them very difficult.
This one was probally my best attempt.
I hope you like it too.
Thanks for voting on my previous upload.
