Photo of the week: New Moon and a butterfly

These two photos are the same butterfly. I think I need to look it up. Whenever it settles, it closes its wings and all you can see is the very pale yellow underside. But when it’s fluttering about, the vivid yellow tops of the wngs are far more noticeable. I’d have loved to get a sharp phoo of that, but the butterfly just wasn’t cooperating.
