Great Southern White meets Lemon Pansy

Ascia monuste, Great Southern White
A headline on Sue's sister's Facebook page summed up today: "Drought lashes Sheffield". Native butterflies were hunkering down so I joined Mark at the Earnley butterfly garden to see what new tropicals were out this week. We saw two new species - the Great Southern White from the Americas and the Lemon Pansy from Asia.
