  3. Hi Sharon, I took them at Symonds Yat on Wednesday. It was a sort of zoo.

    Tony, I am willing to share.

  4. Those are also lovely! I don't look for Latin name Bob, English is enough - I've just never seen them before:)

  6. Joo, the first one is: Common Mormon (papilio polytes), the second is: The Common Sailor (neptis hylas) and the third is: Lime butterfly (papilio demoleus). You wont see them very well, as they come from South America - middle east through to far east.

    Hi Dave, I want to specialise in them, thus I went to a place where they do it.
