Butterfly: Yellow Pansy

Unread post by RosemaryH » Mon Oct 06, 2008 1:38 pm

I am loving this thread, with it I have managed to id "my" African Monarch and I think "my" Garden Inspector, although mine has a slight different colouration. Who needs a Butterfly Book with you guys around? :clap: :clap:

Can you help with this one? It' really beautiful.
