Hello Mike
A marvellous capture of a marvellous beautiful butterfly! I was hoping for someone to show the African species. Your shots are very good, interesting and valuable.
Thank you very much for sharing.
My best regards

Hi Mike,
I guess smaller than most Pierids, though. Keep them coming!! Thanks.
