Where did you photograph the Common Crow? They are very common in the Northern Territory's Top End (assuming it is Euploea core).

These are butterfly house shots, non-native to the uk.

Ahh, I see. I thought that would be a very wide distribution. :)

Six-spotted Burnet Moth.

Some real nice pics in this thread - I will not even try to compete.
I've not posted here before because I've not been active in this field.
We'll have to see what summer brings!

never thought I'd photograph something I used to pay 5c to the kids to catch, and to rub salt in on a thistle!!
We passed a paddock of brassicas yesterday and the air alive with them and the road littered with dead ones

Hey Avondale! Did you ask if you could borrow my thistle? That could be classed as stealing intellectual property!
