Sbg said that the male ones have an orange tip on the reverse of their wings - and this one did! I 'was' lucky - they've been fluttering around for several weeks now, and I've only seen two land on a flower or plant. :-)))

Lovely, so you've now seen the other side.

Yes, except that I peeked at the back of his wings, and saw the orange tips, as Sbg said. I'd have known what the other one was if 'she' had been 'he'...lol.
