Lots of them here in Southern Spain and are considered indigenous to here. So European too! Must have flown a long way!
An immigrant species from North Africa. Not especially uncommon, sometimes you get really good years and they are everywhere but I have never photographed them. I have seen them about but not when I had a camera handy.
This is the new mission. There is an added problem this time. These Butterflies always settle with their wings closed, you only see them open in flight. We have got to have those open wing shots.
