Together with Eastern Festoon and False Apollo, and Eastern Dappled White, these were my favourite new butterfly species for this year.  Fortunately this pristine example posed nicely for me while I was orchid-hunting in Greece back in April.

    • Thanks Tom! Nice to have you pop in.
      It’s also nice to carry a couple of landscape lenses in the bag when out shooting macro, since you never know what you might find.
