  2. That's a beauty, I've seen it & tried to identify it too, I think. Lovely Barry! Posted one year ago
    1. Thanks. identifying South American butterfliers is a real challenge. I have identified 3 from my photos (I will upload them soon) but there are a number of others that I have not been able to identify. But, heh, that makes it all the more fun when you can! Posted one year ago
      1. Yes, I have several "on the boil" as I may say - Look forward to seeing them Barry Posted one year ago
