How lucky can you get Janey? They do say it is not often a Butterfly will
open its wings wide, you must be doing something right, with all the great shots you are showing us.. the Butterfly seems, to be so confident & relaxed in your lovely garden, perhaps, thats the reason, why you have so many
visitors...

Such great comments thanks everyone...:o) They do like to sunbathe Fp...and this one has a bit of damage on the right wings...it looks as if the powder has rubbed off there, still manages to glide about though.

Thank you for the lovely comments....there aren't so many butterflies this year...so it is good to see them whatever their type....though if I had cabbages...I wouldn't be saying that...Lol!
